Famous people who died in 2020
The year 2020 has been to forget, a global pandemic due to coronavirus and several celebrities who have left us. From our website, we hope they rest in peace and we send our condolences to their families.
Actor Sean Connery, 90 years old. The Scottish film legend rose to international stardom as the smooth, sexy and sophisticated British actor James Bond and went on to grace the big screen for four decades.
The great world footballer Diego Armando Maradona, 60 years old. Rising to stardom from a poor Buenos Aires slum to lead Argentina to World Cup victory, Maradona was a story of poverty to wealth in his soccer-mad homeland. A deceptively fast wizard with the ball and a visionary passer, he is considered by some to be the greatest soccer player in history.
Michael Robinson died in Madrid on April 28 at the age of 61 and after a tough battle against cancer.
The great Kobe Bryant of the NBA, 41 years old. One of the NBA's greatest all-time players, Bryant was killed in a helicopter crash near Los Angeles along with his 13-year-old daughter Gianna and seven other people in January. Bryant rose to fame as an 18-year-old rookie fresh out of high school and spent his entire 20-year career with the Lakers before retiring in 2016 with five championship rings.
Actor Jerry Stiller, 92 years old. Stiller played two of the most curmudgeonly parents on American television in the sitcoms "Seinfeld" and "The King of Queens."
