The year 2016 took many celebrity lives away from us, some leaving in peace and some leaving us with unanswered questions. Here, we honor those we have lost by looking back on their incredible contributions to our culture.
1. David Bowie
Legendary musician David Bowie passed away just two days after his 69th birthday, finally succumbing to his very private battle with cancer. With an innovative style, Bowie was one of the most successful musical artists of all time. In addition to his eleven #1 albums and his Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction, he had success as an actor as well. His most memorable role is that of the Goblin King in the cult classic movie, The Labyrinth.
