The 2023 Daily Deathiversaries Calendar

The 2023 Daily Deathiversaries calendar will help you remember and honor your favorite celebrities and well-known names from entertainment and cultural history on the anniversary of their passing. For each and every day of the year, we identify a celebrity who died on that day, the year they died, and their cause of death. And, for each month, we feature an original gravesite photo for one of the celebrities who died that month. And, as always, the calendar includes all new names for 2023!

The 2023 Daily Deathiversaries calendar features iconic names from years gone by and Hollywood's Golden Age, and recent departures from 2022 -- Sidney Poitier, Bob Saget, Louise Fletcher, James Caan, Olivia Newton-John, Nichelle Nichols, Louie Anderson, Naomi Judd, Ray Liotta, Gilbert Gottfried, Anne Heche, Sally Kellerman -- and hundreds more film and TV performers, directors, singers, writers, comedians and other legends (or near-legends) of entertainment.

It's a great conversation piece, and an attractive, artistic addition to the wall of any home, work cubicle, place of business, rec room or personal mausoleum. And it makes a great gift!

The 2023 Daily Deathiversaries calendar, featuring celebrity deathiversaries for all 365 days of the year, is still only US $15, which includes all postage, handling, fees, taxes, tolls, levies, tariffs, etc., for all U.S. orders. That's only about 4 cents per day -- less than the price of a coffee cup (and not even with coffee, just the cup). Non-U.S. orders are still only US $20, including postage and handling and everything else. But it's still a great deal. Honest.

Limited quantities are available, so order now!

Good news and bad news and good news, Daily Deathiversaries calendar fans.

The good news: If you ordered a calendar, you either already have it, or it's on its way to you.

The bad news: I will no longer be taking orders through PayPal.

I've been using PayPal for decades, for much longer than I've been selling calendars. For me, it was a quick, easy and safe system to buy and sell. Now, I feel like it's only quick and easy.

If you're curious, I can tell you the long, painful and frustrating story. The short version is that someone hacked my PayPal account for nefarious purposes, I immediately informed PayPal with all the information, and they did nothing. I tried to follow up, and they stopped answering my messages. So, I'm done with PayPal. And right in the heart of the calendar-buying season!

But the other good news is that if you still want to buy a Daily Deathiversaries calendar (and if you haven't, why haven't you?), there are still options.

Send me a message on Facebook (Hollywood Remains to Be Seen) or Twitter (@CemeteryGuide). Send me an email.

We'll figure something out, and thanks!!

IAQs (Infrequently Asked Questions)

Q. Why did you pick Person X for a particular date, when Person Y also died on that date? Person Y is much more famous / important / popular / beloved / interesting / attractive, etc.?

A. No offense intended to Person Y, but sometimes it's a difficult choice between a bunch of people. We generally focus primarily on movie and TV people, and we rarely include someone who was on last year's calendar. If Person Y isn't on the calendar this year, they might have been on it last year. Or maybe next year.

Q. Who's that person? I've never heard of them! Why are they on my calendar?!

A. Sadly, we can't honor the passing of a universally acclaimed, globally celebrated entertainment superstar on every day of the year. There just aren't enough to go around. And sometimes, that's intentional. If you don't know who someone is, look them up. You might be glad you did, and you'll learn something. And everyone is important to someone.

Q. I've ordered your calendars in previous years, and they always look great. Where do you have them printed?

A. Thanks very much. For the past 5-plus years, we’ve been using Printing Center USA. Before that, we tried a few other companies, but Printing Center USA beats them all in price, quality and customer service. If you’re looking to print your own calendars, brochures, books, catalogs, or any other printing need, we highly recommend Printing Center USA.

Q. Who took the grave pictures?

A. We did.

Q. The photos are quite lovely.

A. Thank you very much, we appreciate that. We intentionally try not to be excessively artistic or creative. We want you to see the grave marker exactly as it is, as you would see it if you happened to find it in a cemetery.

Q. Why is the cause of death sometimes listed as "unknown"? Surely, there must be a reason they died. Is there a mystery surrounding their passing? Should there be an investigation? Should someone call the police? Was it, perhaps ... murder??!

A. It's a calendar, not a legal document. In almost all cases, there is a legitimate and scientific reason why someone died. But, even for a celebrity, that reason isn't always announced. Perhaps the family wants to retain a little privacy, or they might think it's none of your business. And we respect that.

Q. Isn't this a little intrusive? Do we really need to know the exact cause of death for a beloved celebrity?

A. Do you need to know? Absolutely not. But we're including the cause of death, if we know it. Why? Believe it or not, even beloved celebrities are actual human beings. They have the same strengths, weaknesses, illnesses and human frailties we all do. And, like all of us eventually will, they die. In fact, for some people dealing with physical or mental health issues or difficulties, it might actually be comforting to know that a famous person had the same struggles, and they're not alone.

Q. I think this calendar is morbid and depressing, and it makes me feel sad. What can you do about that?

A. Thank you for putting your complaint in the form of a question. We're genuinely sorry that you feel sad. You might be happier with a different calendar. We suggest you Google "fluffy kitty calendars," or whatever doesn't make you sad. There are plenty of options.

Q. Would people at work get creeped out if I hung this calendar in my cubicle at work?

A. Probably not. It's not scary or weird. (Well, it's not scary, anyway.) In fact, it might even start some interesting conversations. Whenever people see the calendar for the first time, they always, always check and see who died on their birthday. And if it's someone they don't know, you can tell them their story, since you've already looked them up (see Question 2). Who knows? Maybe you'll find a kindred spirit and make some new friends. You'd be surprised to find out how many people are secret cemetery fans.

Q. Why should I buy your calendar?

A. We realize that you have a lot of calendar-buying options, from fine art, to holiday and seasonal, to cute baby animals, to scenic locations around the world, to inspiring motivational messages, to sweaty, half-naked firefighters. But, as far as we know, this is the only wall calendar of this type available anywhere in the whole world. We also provide personal service to make sure that everyone is happy with their purchase, and we sincerely appreciate your business.

Q. Do you think anyone is still reading down this far on the page?

A. Probably not.
