Font Size:

When we take a look back at this year and see all the celebrities who were taken from us, the results were certainly dismal.

We lost two amazing musicians in Chris Cornell and Chester Bennington. We also lost Troy Gentry who was part of the country duo group Montgomery Gentry. Gentry passed away tragically in September after the helicopter he was riding in went down.

Don Rickles the famous comedian also passed away at the age of 91 and John Heard, who was best known for playing Kevin McCallister’s father in the ‘Home Alone’ movies, died unexpectedly in July. It was a tough year in 2017, but we made it through and we only have a few more days until we ring in the new year. That means it is time for another fresh start.

Take a moment to look at some of the celebrities we lost in 2017 and here is to hoping 2018 is better to us.
