As the third month of 2016 has passed, we were saddened to learn that UB football star Solomon Jackson had died. Toronto Mayor Rob Ford and Jamestown broadcasting legend Jim Roselle passed this month as well. Our nation has lost many big names this year. Feel free to take a few minutes to remember those recognizable people who have left us in 2016.

Please note that this is simply an informational video list of notable people we’ve lost over the year and not a celebration of anything other than their lives. They include writers, producers, sports heroes, actors, and television personalities. RIP, famous people who died in 2016 – you will be remembered. Photo credits: Getty Images and you tube.
