Farewell 2010, and adieu to all the Celebrities we lost that year

2010 has come and pass and as we bid farewell to a year which saw lousy economy almost throughout the whole world over, and weird weather to make matter worse, we also bid our final farewells to celebrities that have passed on that year. These are stars I either grew up watching, or became fond of in the later years. They will be missed.
