Another year gone, another 12 months of saying goodbye to singers, actors and other famous people who died this past year.

The global coronavirus pandemic made it an especially difficult year for celebrity deaths in 2020, adding to the annual tally of losses caused by time, illness and personal tragedy.

From the shocking accidental deaths of Kobe Bryant and Naya Rivera to the secret cancer that claimed Black Panther actor Chadwick Boseman, there were plenty of unexpected losses that had nothing to do with COVID-19.

The world also lost legends Neil Peart, Alex Trebek, Regis Philbin and Eddie Van Halen.
