    Now this is one that may be more obscure for some of you, but to me, this is more tragic about just how sudden it is. He's leaving behind a young daughter which makes this even more sad.

    from Yahoo News

    I'm going to miss him yelling at me to buy OxiClean and Orange Glo, among other things. I had a genuine respect for the guy, however annoying he could get at times.

    wow! I just saw him on Pitchmen? I think that's what it's called..very sad
    50 I'm sure sounds old to most of the posters here but I'm 50 and I can tell you it's way to young to die.
    I'm very sad about all the recent deaths

    I didn't think there would be another celebrity death for a while after Michael. It's weird that they both died at 50.

    This month just needs to end already.

    Yep, he could sell an icebox to an Eskimo, he could sell the lines in a parking lot to a parking lot striper. Yesterday he was apparently on a flight that had a very rough landing after its front tires blew out, and there was some stuff that fell on his head. They also said that he didn't feel well before he went to bed...it could be coincidence but I sure hope it's not another Natasha Richardson situation.

    ^^Yes, he was on a flight to Tampa last night (US Air I think?) and the nosegear collapsed on landing...the luggage in the bins came out I believe and hit him on the head. I had heard that he went to the hospital last night but was released and then dead this morning. How terrible though. Life really can end very suddenly.

    How strange and unfortunate; the weirdest things can happen... I was recently on a flight where a woman in a nearby seat insisted she could portend this happening (nose gear collapse); obviously it had nothing to do with Billy Mays as this preceded his tragic accident. And it didn't happen, of course. But I remember thinking she was being ridiculous; things like that happen so infrequently... :ninja:

    It must be difficult to lose him suddenly.

    Sorry to spread rumors everyone! The news today is saying it didn't look like he had any kind of head injury from the flight's landing and that it was probably a heart attack; some unknown condition or something.
