Andy Griffith, Larry Hagman, Ernest Borgnine, Phyllis Diller, Davy Jones, William Windom–the list of great actors, entertainers and filmmakers who have died in the past 12 months seems to get more sobering every year at this time. TCM always creates such a beautiful tribute in their annual “TCM Remembers” videos. The haunting song used this time is Wait by M83. TCM posted their annual salute, embedded above, on Dec. 10, so a few big names are missing, including Charles Durning, Jack Klugman and Thunderbirds creator Gerry Anderson. Notable Canadians who passed away in 2012 include Neon Rider star Winston Rekert, 63, writer/producer Frank Peppiatt, 85 and Polka Dot Door creator Ted Coneybeare, 86. Other big TV names off the TCM list include Sherman Hemsley, Richard Dawson , Mike Wallace and a guy who will be missed in Times Square this Dec. 31, Dick Clark.
