2012 in memoriam: who we'll miss the most from 2012 are those cherished celebrities and beloved famous people who passed away during the year 2012. These actors, musicians, politicians, athletes, historical figures and other notable people each were taken from this world during the year but will be remembered fondly.

Sadly, some of the most tragic 2012 celebrity deaths came suddenly. Few would have ever expected singer Whitney Houston, former NFL player Junior Seau or actor Michael Clarke Duncan to pass away in 2012 yet each did for one reason or another.

Other deaths were slightly less unexpected with some even predicted to be on the 2012 celebrity death pool. Celebrities like Phyllis Diller, Andy Griffith, Robin Gibb, Ernest Borgnine and Ray Bradbury all lived long and prosperous lives prior to their 2012 deaths.

So like the famous people who died in 2011, these celebrities and other famous people will definitely be missed. They touched our hearts, they made history and they influenced the world, and they all will be cherished for what they did, not that it's over, for a long time to come.

Check out more lists like which Game of Thrones character's will be most missed, what we yearn for from the years of High School, and what we miss about our early years of youth.
