James Caan, the star of “The Godfather” “Elf” and “Misery,” died earlier this month. The Twitter post announcing his passing read: “It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Jimmy on the evening of July 6. The family appreciates the outpouring of love and heartfelt condolences and asks that you continue to respect their privacy during this difficult time. End of tweet.”
At the time the news spread around, the cause of death was scarce aside from the family’s statement.
According to his death certificate, Caan died at 9:02 PM at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles. His resting place is at Eden Memorial Park.
It has now been revealed that the cause of death of the 82-year-old actor was a heart attack and coronary artery disease.
As the world and his fans mourned his death, a number of celebrities took to the social media to express their condolences. Among them was actor Sylvester Stallone, a great friend of Caan.
He paid tribute to Cann writing, “I will miss my good friend and great actor, James Caan! Tough, Smart, a man’s man. One of a kind!”
Some two years ago, Stallone lost his mother Jackie Stallone, an American astrologer, dancer, and wrestling promoter. She was a celeb in her own right. At the time of her death, she was 98 years old. The news of her passing was shared by Sylvester Stallone’s brother, Frank, who wrote that Jackie died in her sleep.
His ful message read, “At the beginning of today my siblings and I lost our mom Jackie Stallone. She was the mother to four youngsters, Tommy, Sylvester, Frankie and my late sister Toni Ann. She was an exceptional lady working out ordinary brimming with spirit and courageous. She kicked the bucket in her rest as she had wished. It was hard not to like her, she was unconventional and showy individual. She was conceived on November 29 th 1921 in Washington DC, she survived disallowance, the downturn and World War II.”
We are very sorry for James Caan’s passing. May he rest in peace.
