Given that the new year has already seen 3 celebrity deaths (there's likely more, I just saw these three on the news a few days ago), and it feels like every year there's a few big name celebrities leaving this mortal coil, I was wondering what celebrity deaths people here have cared for, since I know everyone likely doesn't care for the majority of them as it comes down to whether you're a fan of that celebrity or something.

Chester Bennington was one I was shocked by due to it being so out of the blue due to suicide. The lead singer of Cranberries was another shocker too. I think the one that made me feel legitimately sad that comes to mind is Paul Walker, since he died while I was still an active fan of something he did and he was still actively making things I wanted to consume, and the tribute to him in Fast & Furious 7 was incredibly touching. I think the fact I had actively seen him with all of that cast throughout the years and then watching a movie knowing they had to finish it without him was what got to me, as the goodbye to the character in the movie felt more of a goodbye to the man from the cast members.

Eddie Guerrero and Chris Benoit (yes he did a shit thing but prior to that knowledge I still found his death sad and it's still a shit situation even knowing what he did) are my two earliest memories of big names dying and I felt bummed about both of those a lot, especially as they both happened very close to each other and WWE knows how to put on a tribute show to their talent, especially the active ones you see on TV every week.

I've never really been bummed when a celebrity dies of old age though, mostly because at a certain age I start to have a slight expectation of that happening anyway. 70's is a little surprising still but anything above 80 is less so, and if they're dying above 90 then I don't really feel bad because it's not like they died young or from some bad scenario, they just simply lived their life to the end and went at a good age.

The only celebrity deaths that have saddened me at all were the deaths of Robin Williams and Chester Bennington. Robin Williams was probably the one that I was most sad about, considering how many of his movies I watched during my childhood, and how much I enjoyed him as an actor and a person. If there was ever a celebrity that I wish I could have known personally, it would have been him.

Other than that, I can't really say I've cared a whole lot about celebrity deaths. There were some others that I was like, "Oh man, that sucks." Like Heath Ledger and the guy who played Uncle Phil in the Fresh Prince (I unfortunately cannot remember his name right now), but the two I mentioned above where the only ones that I was legit sad about.

I don't usually get sad when hearing about celebrity deaths either. Although Michael Jackson, Robin Williams and Chester Bennington were the most shocking and saddest for me. Other notable ones to me would be Eddie Guerrero & Chris Benoit (when I was into WWE at the time), Heath Ledger, Alan Rickman, Carrie Fisher, Leslie Neilson, James Avery (although I don't think I heard the news of his until much later), Steve Irwin (I was getting into his shows, then boom), Bruce Forsyth (was one of those that were old enough and a matter of when, but still there was a sense of a big loss culture wise), Stan Lee (same, but more so as he was more active beforehand from the cameos), Barry Chuckle and Stefan Karl Stefansson.
