I cannot believe Peter O'Toole didn't make this list. He's one of the greatest actors of all-time and is much more important to cinema than any other actor on the list. That's not to say that the others din't deserve credit it's just that he was a giant.

Patty Andrews: January 30, 2013 (aged 94), Los Angeles. The last of the Andrews Sisters, and sort of the end of an era as well.

Mr. Gandolfini was so much more than the Sopranos.

To me he was the shelter one could go to. Fugiratively of course.

He seemed as true a person as I saw in the movie with Kristen Stewart.

But ENOUGH SAID...

I'd just like to mention that Scott Miller, lead singer of Game Theory and The Loud Family, passed away on April 15 at age 53. He was a terrific musician and songwriter and was both a mentor and friend to my favorite local Sacramento artist, Anton Barbeau. The album he and Anton collaborated on in 2006 ("What If It Works?") was the last thing Scott worked on before his untimely death. Check it out if you want to discover two amazing musical talents who deserve to be heard!

Jeffrey John "Jeff" Hanneman. Founding member of Slayer, one of the biggest, most respected bands in the metal genre. Died May 2, 2013. Noted as one of the founding fathers of the modern metal sound and the most creative writer in metal, he died of alcohol-related liver cirrhosis.
His influence stretched throughout the genre, and he deserves a spot in this list.

A most tragic loss in all of the people listed. They will be missed. However, you missed one very important person in Sylvia Browne. How could you leave her out? She was an amazing woman.

Uh, you're joking, right?  Of course, death is always sad and I don't mean to be insensitive...but "very important"?  Really???  She was a fraud, a charlatan.
