Updated 29 Dec 2016: Celebrities We Lost in 2016

Like every year, we lost a number of people in 2016 who we’ve admired throughout our lives. And, like each of those years, we’re left feeling as though more than our fair share passed away. This was especially true early in the year, when David Bowie and Alan Rickman died in January, starting an emotional avalanche that led to Prince’s death in April. Below is a gallery listing of some of the celebrities that Raw Naked Art will mourn the most. Yes, there are others not included in the slideshow, like Cuba’s Fidel Castro, because some people’s passing evokes more of a shrug than a tear. (We aren’t hypocrites here on Raw.) A few were included with mixed reviews, like Israel’s Shimon Peres, who deserves a note based solely on at least trying to establish peace with Palestine. Even more are excluded because we only attempted (as has been pointed out) to list those known in the U.S. or the U.K. Others didn’t make the list due mainly to space; however, if you’re so inclined, stop by CNN or The Mirror for more complete listings of people to add to your prayers, kind thoughts, or perhaps for a spirit to channel on those quiet nights when life seems way too finite. (Click on any image to pull up the slideshow of large images.)

Rest in Peace, dear ones, and thank you.

Love, Maria and Bill
