As with every calendar year, 2013 was filled with many notable celebrities passing away.  Some of these individuals got to live a long, prosperous, full life.  Others died far too soon.  But, whether the people got to live a long life or a short one, they all helped make our world a better, brighter, more interesting place and we are all richer for having gotten to experience their creativity.

On the below slides you will find just a sampling of those who died this year.  It is, by no means, a complete list and it is entirely possible that someone we left off touched you the most.

Who would you have added in that we don't have here? 

The many loves of Josh Lasser include movies, TV, James Bond, even his family. He has incorporated all of these into a career which has featured working on television shows for Martha Stewart and John McEnroe. He also has his NBC Page uniform still tucked away in a closet.
