John Candy

October 31, 1950 – March 4, 1994

John Candy was a comedic giant of the 1980’s. The Canadian actor created memorable roles on the sketch comedy show, SCTV, and found great success in films such as Planes, Trains and AutomobilesUncle Buck and Spaceballs. The rotund actor was infinitely likable and beloved by audiences and costars alike.

In 1994, while filming the movie Wagons East, Candy died of a heart attack in his sleep…most likely to avoid seeing Canadian Bacon actually released.
