    Hey, Before replying:
    1. Make sure person is actually dead.

    2. Make sure the name of person is spelled correctly and includes when they were alive and nationality if possible.

    3. Provide reason for choice of person or context why you chose this person.

    Serious and silly replies welcome!

    I always get sad when I know Stan Lee is dead. It hasn't been very long but I certainly miss him. He brought happiness to a lot of people and that is something I respect.

    Franklin Delano Roosevelt, because he died before the end of his term, and so did not have time to establish an allied relationship between USA and USSR

    Robin Williams. He played so many characters and told so many jokes, and was a wonderful person. I'm sure that if he came back, he would realize how much he was missed and loved. And would've told a joke about too i guess.

    Stephen Hillenberg. He did good stuff, did not deserve to die.

    Keith Flint, I was getting back into the Prodigy when I heard he died. He was such a kind soul and the more you hear from people the sadder it is.

    Yeah Stephen’s contributions to humanity were amazing, imagine what he could have done if he wasn’t in that wheelchair.

    Fred Rogers AKA Mr. Rodgers.

    1928 - 2003

    I had never watched his show unfortunately seeing how It ran from 1966 to 2001 (Technically it ran since 1962 and even had its origins back in 1953, but the show didn't have its famous title until 66). But watching the documentary Won't You Be My Neighbor? really put his legacy into perspective. His whole reason for creating "Mr. Rodger's Neighborhood" was because "Kid's deserved better" when it came to children's programming. Instead of acting out a character, he sought out to be as honest as possible with children and adults (including those who worked on the set) as he covered a wide range of topics such as dealing with emotions, competition, death, self worth, divorce, war, and even the September 11th attacks as well. Whether he wanted to comfort kids or just say hello, he would talk to them face to face as he brought out some of the puppets from the show as if an actual episode were being filmed. In short, Mr. Rodgers was there for us, and seeing how nowadays we keep forgetting about how special we really are despite beating ourselves up in an age of competition, I think we need him more than ever.

    Obviously a paragraph isn't enough to do this man justice, so the least I would do is to watch the aforementioned documentary listed in bold

    "You've made this day a special day, by just your being you. There's no person in the whole world like you; and I like you just the way you are." - Fred Rogers

    Interesting choice, Sadly thigh I’ve never heard or seen Mr. Rogers. (I’m assuming he was on American television which me as a Canuck never got to see.) Thanks for sharing this. You just made my day a bit better.
