Ralphie May, February 17, 1972 - October 6, 2017
Comedian Ralphie May has died at 45, his representative, Stacey Pokluda. His body was found Friday morning at a private residence in Las Vegas, where he had a residency at Harrah's Las Vegas Hotel and Casino.
Pokluda said May had performed there Thursday night after having had to cancel several dates to recover from pneumonia, which had plagued him for weeks. She noted his cause of death was cardiac arrest. In the last two weeks, rock icon Tom Petty and Playboy founder Hugh Hefner both died as a result of cardiac arrest.
