Kick the bucket

Also Can Be Phrased:

Brief Definition: 
To die
Further Explanation: 
To kick the bucket is an informal way of stating that somebody has died. It's origins come from a method of committing suicide where a person hangs himself by standing on a bucket, tightening a noose around their neck, and then ultimately kicking the bucket from under their feet. Despite the origins, the idiom does NOT mean that a person committed suicide, it simply means that they died.
