Top Cryptozoology Deaths of 2013
by Loren Coleman, Cryptozoology A to Z.
It is that time of year when I gather my notes on the recently deceased people whose lives have been touched by cryptozoology and cryptids, in general, and then by extension, touch us.
All deaths are deeply experienced, and I pause to remember those who have passed away in 2013, with respect for them, their families, and for all they shared and created. These individuals are recalled here for my annual goodbye and celebration of their lives.
They are listed chronologically, by date of death.
