Alzheimer's disease and melanoma

Death Summary: Burgess Meredith was 88 years old when he passed away as a result of a combination of Alzheimer's disease and melanoma.

Who was Burgess Meredith : Burgess Meredith was an actor from Cleveland who not only appeared in the Rocky movies with Sylvester Stallone, but like Cesar Romero, was a villain to Adam West's Batman. He was the Penguin, and although his performance was perhaps not as critically acclaimed as that of Heath Ledger's in The Dark Knight, he is remembered fondly just the same.

Also, just as Orson Welles lent his voice to, Transformers: The Moive, Meredith lent his to G.I. Joe: The Movie.

He was in notable classics like Clash of the Titans, Of Mice and Men, and Camp Nowhere as well.
