Hollywood actor, director, writer and producer Garry Marshall is gone at age 81.

The comedy giant died at 5 p.m. PT Tuesday from complications of pneumonia following a stroke at a hospital in Burbank, Calif., his representative Michelle Bega confirmed to USA TODAY.

A beloved figure in show business, Marshall leaves behind a legacy as a hitmaker on television and in films, a comedian with impeccable delivery, and a warm personality to those he encountered.

He was born in the Bronx to a tap dance teacher and an industrial film director. “My mother was special, she gave us our humor,” Marshall recalled in an interview with USA TODAY in April. “I remember her saying, ‘Never be boring.You gotta entertain people.’ And at 16 years old, I didn’t know what boring meant. I said, ‘What is boring, Ma?’ She said, ‘Your father,’ ” he said, chuckling.

Prince’s Death due to Overdose…, pub-2427795083793513, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0

Prince-74291908From YAHOONews:

Prince cause of death: opioid overdose, tests reportedly show

Music megastar Prince died from an overdose of painkillers, according to news reports published on Thursday.

The Associated Press and Minneapolis Star Tribune, both citing unidentified officials close to the investigation, say tests confirm Prince’s cause of death to be an opioid overdose.

Minnesota investigators have reportedly finished autopsy and toxicology inquiries, but have not publicly released the findings.

The news follows weeks of speculation that the 57-year-old singer was addicted to pain medications when he was found dead April 21 at his Paisley Park estate.

Prince’s use of painkillers and how he obtained them has been the focus of a criminal investigation. A judge sealed all records in the case, but no charges are known to have been filed.

If you were alive on August 16, 1977…you know where you were at when you first heard the news he had died. I remember where I was at too. He went to take a shat and never came back. When your number 2 is up, well, it’s up…You think God would have given him five more minutes though…;-)

Anyway, despite dying on the throne, no one can deny his legacy. He was the King of Rock and Roll.

Enjoy him in his prime in the videos below.
