A Look Back at Those We Lost in 2018by 👨‍💻 Graham Pierrepoint

2018 has, sadly, been another year of big losses across all manner of fields and industries. It is a fact of life that there will never be a year where we won’t be saying goodbye to incredible talent in one form or another – and in 2018, we once again lost some truly genuine visionaries and much-loved public figures. Before we head too deep into 2019, let’s take a moment to honor some of those who passed away over the past twelve months.

Aretha Franklin
The Queen of Soul passed away mid-August, leaving behind an immeasurable musical legacy – the likes of which we will never see again.
