Born: 1950-10-31 - Died: 1994-03-04
Cause of Death:
Heart Attack

Death Summary: Candy suffered a coronary embolism, which led to a heart attack, and died in his sleep at the age of 43 while in Durango, Mexico for the filming of his last movie Wagons East.

He had a history of heart disease in his family and doctors told him repeatedly that he needed to lose weight. He had indeed started to do so, on top of quitting smoking, but it was all unfortunately too little, too late for the beloved actor.

Who was John Candy : John Franklin Candy was one of the most adored comedic actors of his time, particularly throughout the 80s and early 90s.

He appeared on the Canadian sketch-comedy show SCTV before breaking into movies. Memorable films included Uncle Buck, Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, The Great Outdoors, and Spaceballs to name a few. He even had a cartoon called Camp Candy, in which an animated version of himself ran a children's summer camp.

Similarly to Chris Farley, Candy was self-conscious about his weight throughout most of his life, and it almost surely played a factor in his demise. The loss of John Candy, was one of the greatest losses comedy.
