6. Roy Horn
The name Roy Horn may not sound familiar to you, but the name of the magic act he was a part of will definitely ring a bell. That’s right, Roy Horn is half of the duo Siegfried & Roy. Unfortunately, on May 8, Horn died of complications caused by the coronavirus.
“Today, the world has lost one of the greats of magic, but I have lost my best friend,” Siegfried Fischbacher told E! News. “From the moment we met, I knew Roy and I, together, would change the world. There could be no Siegfried without Roy, and no Roy without Siegfried.”
