Celebrities Who Died In 2022: In Memoriam

by at .  Updated at .

Gone.

But never forgotten.

That's the theme of this melancholy page on The Hollywood Gossip, as we stop and pay homage to the stars who passed away in 2022.

Some were singers.

Some were authors.

Others on this list were actors. Others still were athletes or entertainers, or public figures in general. Everyone mentioned here has one thing in common, however:

They left an impact on friends, family members, loved ones - as well as the fans who listened to their songs and/or watched them on the big screen or small screen, or even their phone screen.

May each of these celebrities rest in peace ...
