He used to make us laugh with his comedic skills, which is obvious to everyone that it also brings him to be one of the funniest, and most foul-mouthed, men in the world. Unfortunately, the Hollywood biggest star now makes us cry. Richard Pryor died of a heart attack at age 65 Saturday December 10th, leaving many of his fans in a deep mourning.
Previously being taken to a hospital from his home in the San Fernando Valley, the comedian died after he's been ill for years with multiple sclerosis, a degenerative disease of the nervous system, Karen Finch his business manager explained. Marked his leaving, music producer Quincy Jones said "He was the Charlie Parker of comedy, a master of telling the truth that influenced every comedian that came after him. The legacy that he leaves will forever be with us."
