  1. Steve Irwin
  2. Levon Helm
  3. Robin Williams
  4. Anthony Bourdain

Are the four that I really did want to cry over, even thinking about them now has me a little choked up.

None. I don’t know any celebrities personally, so it would be pretty silly of me to be overly emotional about their deaths, imo. If a death has some especially tragic background to it, then I may feel some sentiment akin to “aww that’s too bad” or “that’s horrible” or something. Very little emotion beyond that and life goes on of course.

Chester Bennington.

His voice really was the voice of my early teenage years ...and got me through a lot.

I generally agree with this.

Broke my heart when Eddie Guerrero died though.

Dang! I wasn't a fan but I didn't actually know he had died.

A number of them; I was shaken hearing the death of Dana Plato, when I found out; but, I usually sympathize, when I hear of a death, like a gatekeeper between life and death.

None. I'll be like "Damn..." And shrug it off.

None, but I do feel bad that we'll never get another Prince album. The day after he died I listened to his music all day long at work.

Lifelong wrestling fan so I get pretty emotional when one of them passes. Especially young guys like Rick Ride, Curt Hennig and Eddie Guerrero

Stan Lee brought me very close to tears

Chris Reeve, Robin Williams, Eddie Guerrero, Margot Kidder, Carrie Fisher and Chester Ben. were all hella devastating as well.

Well I’ve cried over a celebrity death as I don’t think I have the capacity to get that upset over somebody I hadn’t known personally. However there have been some deaths that have affected me the most like Alan Rickman’s departure: anyone who grew up watching the HP films and reading the books can relate.

Yeah that came out of nowhere, I couldn't even believe it. Haven't been able to get through an episode of Parts Unknown since.

@dr_shenanigans: same here. I had no idea he was (medically) depressive.

People should be more open about that and take their medicine. Someone with a bacterial infection will not (most of the time) forget his/her antibiotics. That should be the same here.

Even his attitude on camera told me he had some issues but I never thought he would actually take his own life.
