CELEBRITY DEATHS IN 2017: Remembering the stars we’ve lost

Don was a legend in the comedy world and known for roasting celebs with his rapid fire insults. He was an honorary member of the Rat Pack and rose to fame after he insulted Frank Sinatra and got a big laugh from the singer/actor, who normally did not enjoy that treatment.

In recent years, Don has voiced the role of Mr. Potato Head in the Toy Story series and appeared in a voice role in Kevin James‘ 2011 movie Zookeeper.

Rickles is survived by his wife Barbara, two kids, and two grandchildren. We send our thoughts and condolences to his loved ones during this difficult time.

  • Ken-Paul Gaudet-Gallant

    I’m sorry for those who loved him…but I remember seeing him on TV when I was very young [I am now 64] and I would change the channel on our B&W Philco immediately. I found him vulgar and distasteful and very mean spirited and we were not raised to think that ridiculing someone was comical. My opinion of him still hasn’t changed.

  • Jan M. Bartlett

    I don’t like mean-spirited humor either, so I understand your feelings for him. I much preferred those comedians who were just plain funny. But, to each his own. Supposedly he was a very sweet guy off-stage. RIP.

  • tessjones

    Deeply saddened. He made an art form of being politically incorrect and made people laugh at themselves.

  • Charles Wall

    I never knew him personally. I never liked him as a comic. He wasn’t a star because of me. RIP Don

  • Edward Weiss

    DON WAS 4 5 AND 6 STEPS AHEAD OF EVERYONE IN THINKING OFF THE CUFF! Yes his comedy was cutting Humor! All of those roasters knew he was a great white shark in the Ocean! His mind was at light speed! TRULY REMARKABLE TALENT! Thanks Don for your time here with Us!

  • MickeyFreakinDougal

    I disagree about him. He could always make the person he was joking about laugh along with the joke. Today’s humor is truly cruel. A lot of comics today are just bullies, getting the crowd to laugh AT someone. Even though Rickles may have crossed a line now and then, I never considered him mean. Brash, yes, Mean, no.

  • MickeyFreakinDougal

    Most people he joked about considered themselves lucky for the experience.
