If 2016 felt like a celebrity death epidemic—including the unexpected deaths of the relatively young Prince, David Bowie, Alan Rickman and Carrie Fisher—2017 was filled with less surprising, if still bittersweet, farewells. In comedy, three foundational legends passed away: Mary Tyler Moore, Don Rickles and Jerry Lewis; in music, we lost rock and roll legends Chuck Berry and Fats Domino. Not that there weren’t terrible shocks as well—from Tom Petty, dead at 66, to Lil Peep, gone at just 21.
Here are a few of the great talents we lost in 2017:
Mary Tyler Moore, January 25The beloved actress, best known for the indelible characters she created for the sitcoms The Dick Van Dyke Show and the groundbreaking Mary Tyler Moore Show, went on to do powerful dramatic work in the film Ordinary People, for which she received an Oscar nomination. She died in Greenwich, Connecticut, at age 80. She had struggled with diabetes for much of her life and underwent brain surgery in 2011.

While it is considered a demotion in military ranks, actor Christopher Boyer doesn't mind his transition from a general to a colonel.
Boyer, a Hagerstown native who played Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee in the movie "Lincoln," has been selected as the next Colonel Harland Sanders to appear in KFC's TV advertising later this month, the popular chicken chain announced Wednesday.
After months of rotating celebrities appearing in its commercials, KFC is turning to the lesser-known Boyer to serve as its "Value Colonel," a money-saving move that will allow the brand's restaurants to continue offering meals that "won't break the bank," according to a KFC news release.
"I can't wait to see them," said Boyer, 57, who now lives in Los Angeles. "I've been following the campaign since they brought the Colonel back about two years ago. It's always been fun to try to figure out who's behind the mask."
Boyer's acting credits include supporting roles in var..
