Jo Cox, a 41-year-old Labour Party politician.

Shot and stabbed by a pair of men who, according to a witness, repeatedly shouted "Britain first." Cox was an opponent of a possible British withdraw from the EU.

"Cox spent many years working for aid groups including Oxfam and Save the Children, visiting problem-plagued areas, including Darfur and Afghanistan. She was elected to the House of Commons in the May 2015 general election and headed Parliament's Friends of Syria group."

Bud Spencer (real name Carlo Pedersoli), 86, Italian actor.
Best known for partnering with Terence Hill in the Spaghetti Westerns in the 70's. Used to watch these as a kid.

Götz George, 77, German actor.
The star of the Oscar-nominated comedy 'Schtonk!' was best known for his role as Inspector Horst Schimanski on the hit TV crime show 'Tatort.' Another thing I used to watch while younger.

Buddy Ryan coached the Chicago Bears as a Defensive Coordinator to the 1985 Super Bowl and was carried off the field by his players after the victory. In 1993, he also threw a punch on the sidelines at the Offensive Coordinator of the Houston Oilers for his bad playcalling.

Elie Wiesel; Holocaust Survivor and Nobel Laureate  1928-2016.

So goes one of last, firmest voices to survive the midnight of the last century.

Let's keep his lesson in mind: fear is the doorman to the hall of history's greatest atrocities. It starts with anxiety and ignorance, and ends in a darkness that spits on the idea of dawn.

The above may be conjecture, deliberate paraphrase, or outright bullshit.

Jerry Doyle, 60, actor. Best known for his role as Chief of Security Michael Garibaldi in Babylon 5.
:'( Garibaldi (and by proxy Jerry Doyle's portrayal of him) was one of the very best things about Babylon 5, right up there with Ivanova and ahead of G'Kar, Bester, and Sheridan. I'm going to have to watch this again now, aren't I?

(minor spoilers for S4 of Babylon 5 below)

I was - surprisingly - genuinely upset at what Bester did to Garibaldi in the later seasons of B5, which (to me) speaks volumes about how much I was invested in his character. Partially due to the writing, no doubt, but mostly due to his portrayal of it. A defining role, indeed
