There is no doubt Dick Clark will be greatly missed by many people, and with his ties to St. Cloud it makes the loss of such an iconic man feel that much 'closer to home'. But I think what is going to be the hardest will be ringing in 2013 without Dick Clark.

He began broadcasting Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve in 1973 and despite a massive stroke in 2004 he continued to be a part of the program through 2012. Here are videos of his first and last countdown into the new year.  RIP Dick Clark.
