Died February 24, 2014.
Comedy great Harold Ramis has died at the age of 69. According to MSN, he died from ‘complications from auto-immune inflammatory vasculitis, a rare disease that causes swelling of the blood vessels’.
Known for his late ’70’s and ’80’s comedies, notably Stripes, Ghostbusters, and Groundhog Day, Ramis was as comfortable in front of the camera as behind it. He will be sorely missed. Let us all send good vibes to his family and let them know he will not be forgotten.
