Notable Deaths 2017

Postby Big-Will » Thu Dec 29, 2016 8:47 pm

We've been keeping track of notable deaths here since 2008, and it all started with Heath Ledger. Separate threads began to appear for new deaths, and I decided that they should all go into one thread, to be renewed each New Year's Day, so now we have nine years' worth of obits to look through. Here's Memory Lane.

This past year has been particularly eventful for deaths, more so since I've been seeing F 2016 on FB lately.

The thread is now open!

Y'all let me know if there are duplicate posts - I'll edit those out.

30 year old LAPD Officer Heather Monroe was killed early January 01, 2017, in Simi Valley, California. Officer Monroe was a passenger in a car. She was wearing a seat belt. The other car was an Uber driver and his passenger. The cause of the accident is under investigation, although it appears that one of the cars ran a red light.

Dude, you misspelled "Kosana", and you didn't even know he died on the day before New Year's Eve 2016!

Dude, you didn't even know he died on Christmas Eve 2016, so you skipped both 2016 deaths!

Dude, you didn't post his age of 83 nor the link, so I'm doing this for you!
