This is a chronology of deaths in 2016. Names are reported under the date of death. Names under each date are reported in alphabetical order by surname or pseudonym. Deaths of non-humans are reported here if they first have their own PhysicsWiki article. Notable persons without an article can be listed for one month after death to prompt creation of one. A typical entry reports information in the following sequence:

  • Name, age, country of citizenship at birth, subsequent country of citizenship (if applicable), reason for notability, cause of death (if known), and reference.
