Each of these men was famous in his own right, but we must remember they were human beings who worked hard at their jobs and maybe messed up occasionally in their private lives - just like the rest of us. Let us honour them at their passing and remember them for the pleasure they gave us through their talents. Blessings to each of them and to their families who knew them best.
