A user said, “Too early and such a source of joy to so many.”

Someone agreed and said, “Yes. Every time I go to Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World, I have to go to the Muppets 3D movie; it was the last thing he did as Kermit. It makes me sad that he died before the paperwork with Disney was complete, and because of that, a lot of the plans for the muppets at that park never happened.”

3. Alan Rickman

A user said, “My first movie intro to him was the Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood Prince of Thieves, and I still threaten to take someone’s heart out with a spoon. God rest his soul.”

“You could see he was ill, unfortunately, wasn’t a huge shock. But still a massive loss. I must watch something with him daily,” a user said.

5. John Ritter

“John Ritter is the only celebrity death that I’ve ever cried about. It was so sudden and unexpected, and he had seemed so nice. I cried all throughout the episode of 8 Simple Rules where they showed his TV family grieving his loss,” someone shared.

6. Heath Ledger

A user shared, “In 8th grade English class, we read “Taming of the Shrew,” and then the teacher let us watch 10 Things I Hate About You to show us how his works still impact writing today. So I had JUST discovered Heath and had a massive crush on him when he passed away less than a year later. It was the first celebrity death that really impacted me.”

7. Cameron Boyce

A user shared, “This one upset me a lot. Not on everyone’s radar because he was a Disney kid. Definitely, a shock when it happened. I’m older, but my kids are at an age where we spent a ton of time watching Jessie and those Descendant movies. Basically watched that kid grow up. He was ridiculously talented. Had comedic timing down. Could dance crazily well. And he just seemed like an all-around good human being. Didn’t deserve to go that young. So unfair.”

8. Chester Bennington

“I’ll forever regret never seeing Linkin Park in concert. They were my favorite band as a teenager, and I had one opportunity to see them live when I was in high school and skipped it because I was sure I’d have another chance. Nope. Damn,” A user said.

9. Grant Imahara

A user said, “His death was so random and unexpected I genuinely didn’t believe he died. For a couple of days, after it happened, I was silently convinced it was an internet prank.”

10. Leonard Nimoy

“I have only recently started watching Star Trek at the request of my boyfriend, and Spock immediately became my favorite character! I looked him up on Google one day and found out he has been dead for the past eight years!” a user shared.

11. Fred Rogers

Someone shared, “It was pouring rain that morning, and I’d stopped to grab breakfast before a looming nightmare commute to work. Right as I was about to pull the key out of the ignition, I heard them say on the radio that he’d passed and just sat there in my car, sobbing.”

12. Steve Irwin

“It hit hard in the States, as I’m sure it did throughout much of the world. He was such a genuinely passionate man who wanted to better understand and help the animals we share this world with. His personality alone made it hard not to love the guy.”

13. Chris Cornell

A user said, “I did a presentation on the parallels of “Like a Stone” with a story we read in class (can’t remember the story.) Such a great song. Cornell had so many!”

14. Anthony Bourdain

“It’s hard rewatching all his stuff now. Some of the things that he said really made me sit up and think to myself that we all missed the signs and taught me to listen to people more carefully,” a user said.

15. Brittany Murphy

Someone said, “The documentary put out on her made it seem so preventable. Her story truly hurt my heart. Looking at this post, I see a lot of names that make me think the same.”

16. James Gandolfini
