In Remembrance: Celebrity Deaths in 2012

As 2012 comes to a close, we’d like to remember the celebrities that passed away this past year.

It came as a shock when news spread that legendary singer Whitney Houston passed away in February, right before the 2012 Grammy Awards. Another singing legend Etta James passed away just one month before in January after a long battle with leukemia.

Director Tony Scott tragically committed suicide over the summer by jumping off a bridge. He was survived by numerous loved ones, including his brother, director Ridley Scott.

Our continued thoughts go out to the families and friends of those who passed away this year.
