Every year several of those whose autographs I've secured (1-4x) over the years pass away. Here's the list from my collection who died in 2013:

Andre Schiffrin - independent/progressive publisher
Major Owens - former Representative from New York. Championed education and Americans With Disabilities Act.

Lou Reed - influencial singer/songwriter
Muriel Siebert - First Woman of Finance. First woman to own a seat on the NYSE.
Ed Koch - combative NYC Mayor

Lawrence R. Klein - economist, Nobel Laureate
Frank Lautenberg - longtime New Jersey Senator. Was oldest member of Congress when he died.
Elmore Leonard - leading novelist/screenwriter
Helen Thomas - grilled nine presidents as a White House correspondent

Diane Miller Disney. I have a book written by her about her dad (Walt) and it was signed by Walt.  Wish I had her signature on it as well.  Great book, though.
