Over the course of 2016 many celebrated lives were lost. Prince, Zsa Za Gabor, David Bowie, Florence Henderson, John Glenn and Harper Lee are some of the bold-faced national – and international – celebrities who died this year. Locally, we felt the loss of figures who shaped the region and others’ perception of it through their work. We remember figures like cartoonist Richard Thompson, journalist Gwen Ifill and author and professor E.R. Braithwaite and mark the lives of locals whose work touched those in the region and beyond.
