    Actor Howard Hesseman (81), best known for his role as Dr. Johnny Fever on WKRP in Cincinnati, died from complications following colon surgery

    https://www.cnn.com/2022/01/30/enter...ies/index.html

    Actor Howard Hesseman, best known as the hard rocking disc jockey Dr. Johnny Fever on the sitcom "WKRP in Cincinnati" has died, according to his manager Robbie Kass.

    Hesseman died Saturday afternoon from complications related to colon surgery, Kass told CNN. Hesseman was 81.

    In addition to earning two Emmy nominations for his role on "WKRP," Hesseman also appeared on "Head of the Class" and "One Day at a Time," along with guest appearances on "That 70's Show," among others. The Oregon native also hosted "Saturday Night Live" several times.

    "He was a groundbreaking talent and lifelong friend and longtime client, whose kindness and generosity was equaled by his influence and admiration to generations of actors and improvisational comedy throughout the world," Kass told CNN in an email on Sunday.

    I want to know more details on this. My friend almost died, from complications related to a colonoscopy - as in, they tore a 4" hole in her colon and sent her home to die of sepsis. She now wears a colostomy bag (she's 45yo). Since that happened, I have learned of FIVE other similar "complications" of a colonoscopy (all ending in colostomy bags). I think it's more common than people realize.

    Rest in Peace Howard H, you were a funny dude...
    You are talking to a woman who has laughed in the face of death, sneered at doom and chuckled at catastrophe.
