Dan Wheldon was a British racing driver from England. He was the 2005 Indy Racing League IndyCar Series champion, and a two-time winner of the Indianapolis 500. Wheldon died from injuries shortly after a collision at the 2011 IZOD IndyCar World Championship at Las Vegas Motor Speedway on 16 October 2011, at the age of 33.

It’s been one of the most exciting and enchanting years in the entertainment industry, but 2011 hasn’t been without it’s fair share of losses.

And as the year comes to a close, we remember those who made their mark on Tinseltown before being laid to rest in recent months.
