We remember them for their comedy routines — Dick Gregory and Jerry Lewis — their shows — John Mahoney's patriarch on "Frasier," Mickey Jones' pot dealer on "Justified" — the characters they portrayed — Julius Caesar in "Spartacus" (John Gavin), Freddy on "House of Cards (Reg E. Cathey) — the films they helmed ("Rocky" director John Avildsen) — the music that will remain in rotation — Vic Damone, Malcolm Young, Walter Becker — and the sports they dominated on the field or behind the microphone — Giant Y.A. Tittle, Keith Jackson.
Here are the actors, musicians, athletes, politicians and other well-known names we've recently said goodbye to.
