Celebrities die just like the rest of us, the only difference is when they pass, it makes world news. But sometimes it doesnt make the headlines. There are dozens of B actors that you know by face but never knew their names. Their passings are overshadowed by the huge celebrities that the paparazzi chase all over the globe. Some on this list will shock you because you never even knew they were gone. Others will be reminders of our youth and the roles they played in that era of our lives. The music and films will live on forever but their creative genius was only just a flash for all of us to see before they were gone forever.

One thing is for certain, no matter the amount of fame or the fortune, there is no hierarchy when it comes to the grim reaper. #dontdodrugs
