Jackie Gleason


American comedian, the top male star of his day and TV's biggest star in the 50s for his show "The Honeymooners." His characters, Poor Soul, Reggie van Gleason III and Joe the Bartender were household names from his popular TV program "The Jackie Gleason Show" in the '60s. His movies include "The Hustler," 1961 and "Smokey and the Bandit," 1977.

With a Falstaffian enjoyment of life, Gleason drank prodigiously, smoked and ate excessively and had his weight go as high as 280 lbs. In 1978 he had a triple coronary bypass and in 1983, bypass surgery on his legs. He had emphysema and diabetes, and died of cancer of the liver and colon quietly at his home in Fort Lauderdale, FL on 6/24/1987, 7:00 PM per death certificate. He was survived by his widow, two daughters, a stepson and four grandkids.
