With the passing of each year comes many good things – accomplishments, successes and so many wonderful memories. But, along with the good comes saying goodbye to people we’ve loved, watched and been fans of for many years. We lost some pretty notable and courageous people in 2016 – and remembering them and their contributions to the world is the best way we can keep their names and spirits alive. From celebrities like Zsa Zsa Gabor to astronauts like John Glenn – we’ll miss these faces and names as we move into another New Year. Here’s a look at some of the most notable names we lost in 2016 and for a full look, check out the Today Show’s video: In memoriam 2016: TODAY pays tribute to the many notables we lost.

It’s been an incredible year in so many respects, but we certainly lost some legends along the way. As we move into a New Year filled with opportunity, let’s keep the memory alive of these incredible souls.
