The world shines a little less brightly after the death of these 10 stars who left us too soon.

Robin Williams

Robin Williams acting talents - and larger than life personality - endeared him to fans around the world.  The Oscar winner earned more than 100 acting credits over the course of his successful career, which came to an untimely end in August 2014.  Suffering from paranoia and severe depression, Robin took his own life.  His ashes were spread in the San Francisco Bay.

Amy Winehouse

A rising star who was at the top of her game, Amy Winehouse sadly succumbed to her personal demons.  The British singer died of alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011 at just 27 years old.  At the time of her death, Amy’s album, ‘Back to Black,’ posthumously became the UK’s best selling album of the 21st century.  Just three years earlier, Amy said that she feared becoming part of the infamous 27 club, which includes Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, and Jimi Hendrix.
