The first person to walk on the moon. A great general who led us through a successful military campaign. A singer and multi-talented entertainer whose troubled life after fame and fortune came to a sorry end. A legendary football coach defamed by scandal. A childrens' author with lessons for adults. Two hugely popular artists who catered to the masses and two Oscar winners. A trailblazing comedienne, three giants from the early days of TV, a former queen of country music and a toe-tapping country picker. The image of eternal youth and a TV reporter who's piercing questions made the powerful squirm. These were among those we lost this year.
We bid farewell to all of them and ask: How many of the following (listed in chronological order) do you remember?
