When a celebrity passes away at an early age, it is a reminder of how fleeting life really is. Young, beautiful celebrities appear as if they will live forever, but when their lives are cut short, the cold reality of life becomes devastatingly clear. Memento Mori—remember you will die. Whether they be actors, musicians, sports heroes or politicians, the death of a public figure can have an effect on a great number of people. In fact, one could argue that when a celebrity or public figure dies, it can herald the end of a particular era or movement.

One need only to recall the effect that John F. Kennedy’s death had on the American people. When JFK’s presidency began, it felt as if the United States was some fairy tale kingdom come to life. His assassination marked the end of that American fairy tale, and while his death did not spark the social and political change that defined the coming decades, it certainly felt like it was the beginning of something new, something different, something less optimistic. In retrospect, his untimely death felt like it was the death of the American Golden Age and the beginning of an American decline. In the following gallery, we take a look at some famous faces who passed away all too soon, and discuss their life and the affect their passing had on the people who admired them.
