17 Celebrity Deaths In 2022: Look Back At the World’s Fallen Stars

In our hearts forever. Back in 2021, Hollywood regrettably lamented the passing of legends like Betty White and John Madden, 2022 also saw a number of high-profile passings that left fans inconsolable.

One example of such a great loss is the football legend Dan Reeves, who passed away on January 1st, leaving the sports world. Throughout his career, the 77-year-old native of Georgia played in nine Super Bowls, winning one as a player and another as an assistant coach.

His loss was felt far and wide since he was one of the most successful coaches in the history of the league. In a statement on January 1, former Denver Broncos quarterback John Elway noted, “The football world lost a heckuva coach and man in Dan Reeves.” “Dan was a champion, and I owe him a great deal. Pam and the rest of the Reeves family have my deepest sympathies.

Another tragic loss is the death of Jay Weaver, a cherished artist in the Christian music sector. He passed away the next day following Dan’s death. Kim Mi-soo, a rising star in the Korean film industry, also died on January 5 at the age of 29.

Let’s take a look back at some other celebrity deaths in 2022.
