You missed some including the recent death of Zsa Zsa Gabor (that I don't think was mentioned here).
Also, I'd like if celebrity deaths were the reason for that question, but too many people seem to think 2016 was somehow worse than other years, and most of them list as the number one reason the year was so awful the recent election that needs to not be discussed here.
