A Look Back at Those We Lost in 2018by 👨‍💻 Graham Pierrepoint

2018 has, sadly, been another year of big losses across all manner of fields and industries. It is a fact of life that there will never be a year where we won’t be saying goodbye to incredible talent in one form or another – and in 2018, we once again lost some truly genuine visionaries and much-loved public figures. Before we head too deep into 2019, let’s take a moment to honor some of those who passed away over the past twelve months.

Aretha Franklin
The Queen of Soul passed away mid-August, leaving behind an immeasurable musical legacy – the likes of which we will never see again.

Professor Stephen Hawking
Has one individual done more for modern popular science than Professor Hawking? It’s hard to say – but the immensely talented and charismatic physicist sadly died in March this year.

Burt Reynolds
If you didn’t know him for his maverick acting chops, you certainly knew him for the moustache! The movie icon sadly bowed out in September.
