The DeathList 2018

https://deathlist.net/

6 / 50 dead

Welcome to DeathList 2018. Below you will find a list of 50 celebrities which our expert committee has selected with the expectation that they will die during 2018. The DeathList has a few rules as follows: The nominees must be famous enough such that their death is expected to be reported by the UK media; Candidates cannot be famous solely for the fact they are likely to die in the near future and only 25 candidates can reappear from the previous year’s list. In 2017, years of promise were realised when the list smashed the previous record, chalking up an astonishing 17 successes. Does this suggest there will now be some lean years ahead for DeathList? Or has the DeathList forum become such a powerful resource now that we could see the record surpassed again in 2018?

Meanwhile, here are some other words for people who are not quite as old as 100, centenarians: a person who is between 70 and 79 years old is a septuagenarian. a person who is between 80 and 89 years old is an octogenarian. a person who is between 90 and 99 years old is a nonagenarian.

Holy shyt, you mean some of these people might die this year?

Jerry Van Dyke - actor best known for playing Luther Van Dam on COACH and brother of **** Van Dyke.

 

RIP Jerry.

For those of you too young, Jerry had a show I liked in the mid-60s, "My Mother The Car" it was a good concept for a show.

Zombie was one of the first songs I ever learned on guitar. 

That's pretty good, but can you play smoke on the water?
