A Look Back at Those Who Have Passed in 2010

Posted on 20 December 2010 by Christian

I thought it would be interesting to see which celebrities have passed on in 2010, so I’ve compiled a list of those who have passed on.

Recently, we in the “geek” universe lost two iconic figures in Irvin Kershner, director of The Empire Strikes Back, and actor Leslie Nielsen (Airplane). So I decided to look back over the rest of the year to see who else has passed on. For the sake of this being TheNoobNews.com, I will do my best to keep the dearly departed within the realm of our topics, and maybe just toss in a few others for good measure.
