It's 2016 and I hate saying goodbye to actors who have been such a huge part of my life....
Not everyone who passed between january 1st, 2015 and today, January 5, 2016, is listed here, obviously. But those who are here are because they were a large part of my life, life with my parents, old, wonderfully hoaky tv shows and movies, favorite scifi shows and movies, and singers/songwriters who impacted my listening experience (and a couple of screenwriters/producers responsible for favorite movies). You might have a different list, but I'm pretty sure we all lost favorites.
I cried like a baby when I saw this, which was when I found out he was gone from us

The rest are under the cut, many of whom won't make any of those award show memoriums.
PS: the lj-cut is showing with the dashes and scissors, but can't tell if it's working....

I miss them all. They have all touched our lives and we would be nowhere without them. Thank you for posting this. Very nice tribute.

Oh no! What an awful list! And I had no idea that Robert Loggia and Wayne Rogers had gone as well. :(((((

We have lost so many good ones this year, I recognised most of them, but don't know they were gone.I guess they didn't think us Brits would be interested.

I'd somehow missed Louis Jourdan.

So many wonderful memories. Thank you for posting this. Even though it's sad, it's also lovely to look back and remember them all.
