Celebrity Deaths of 2009: A Tribute

by at . Comments

It's one of only two guarantees in life, so it's never too surprising when a star leaves us. But this year was quite unlike most others in terms of celebrity deaths, both in terms of pure volume and in the nature in which some passed away.

From some of the biggest celebrities on the planet to those we barely got to know, and from older stars to those who were taken from us far too soon, 2009 marked a sad farewell to so many memorable names and faces.

Here's a list of notable celebrity deaths of 2009. If we left anyone off, it was just a mistake. Just leave a comment and we'll add them ASAP ...
