We’re paying our respects to all the prolific musicians, actors, comedians, and cultural icons who died in 2022. This month, we lost “Hair” cocreator James Rado and former NFL star Tony Siragusa. In May, we lost “Melrose Place” star Brad Johnson, “Goodfellas” star Ray Liotta, “American Graffiti” actor Bo Hopkins, “As the World Turns” actor Marnie Schulenburg, Atlanta rapper Lil Keed, and “Friends” actor Mike Hagerty. Grammy-winning singer Naomi Judd of The Judds, Earth, Wind & Fire saxophonist Andrew Woolfolk, and comic-book artist Neal Adams died in April.
This year, we also lost Hollywood icon Sidney Poitier, Miss USA 2019 winner Cheslie Kryst, “Bat Out of Hell” rocker Meat Loaf, funk pioneer Betty Davis, and “Full House” comedian Bob Saget. They all made lasting marks on their respective industries. Ahead, we pay homage to all the celebrities we’ve lost in 2022.
