2017 was a rough year for celebrities passing away. We lost a number of very beloved figures in entertainment and sports. The news seemed like it was a constant cycle of obituaries and tributes.
Actor Sir John Hurt was one of those we lost. He was an English actor who produced excellent work for over five decades. David Lynch once described him as "simply the greatest actor in the world." He passed of cancer, at age 77. He had been knighted two years prior.
We also lost Mary Tyler Moore, an actress best known for her role on The Mary Tyler Moore Show. She was also nominated for an Oscar for her role in the film Ordinary People. She suffered a cardiopulmonary arrest due to pneumonia, age 80.
