It says after a long illness, so I assume cancer, although there are other possibilities. Sounds less likely to be the vaccine this time.

From the NY Post article:
Gottfried’s representative, Glenn Schwartz, has since shared that the actor succumbed to a heart abnormality called recurrent ventricular tachycardia, an arrhythmia caused by myotonic dystrophy Type 2.

Myotonic dystrophy (DM) is a genetic disorder marked by progressive muscle wasting and weakness which predominantly affects the limbs and face but can create increasingly dire complications for respiratory, skeletal and cardiac muscles.

People with DM are at a higher risk of irregular heartbeat, including ventricular tachycardia, an arrhythmia in the lower chambers of the heart (ventricles) that causes the heart to beat faster. A sustained sped-up rhythm can cause a fatal drop in blood pressure.

Gottfried’s heart condition has been publicly known for some time.

On the cusp of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, he canceled a series of live appearances in Montana as his doctors reportedly advised that he refrain from flying during a viral outbreak due to his weakened heart.

One of the great goal scorers in hockey during the 80's, Mike Bossy, has passed away at the age of 65.
He had been battling lung cancer for a few months.

Oh no! He was one of the greatest goal scorers of all-time. Legendary. This is sad.

Guy Lafleur! One of the greatest goal scorers ever.


First Mike Bossy then a week later Guy Lafleur. Insane. They were the 2 greatest scorers of their era besides when Gretzky came on the scene.

They were both the top goal scorer on teams that won the Cup 4 years in a row, Lafleur in 1976, 1977, 1978 and 1979 with Montreal then Bossy in 1980, 1981, 1982, 1983 with the Islanders.

Lafleur - 6 consecutive seasons of 50+ goals, 1974 - 1979
Bossy - 9 consecutive seasons of 50+ goals, 1977 - 1985, NHL record

Loved Lafleur. 10 minute standing ovation at the Forum last night.
