Fuck.
Fuck you, cancer.
Throat cancer, no less. Probably brought about by his several decades of heavy drinking.

Such a loss, though.
More likely it was his smoking--or perhaps a combination of the two. The news said he was a heavy smoked until 1995, when he was diagnosed with liver cancer and had a transplant. He'd been in frail health for years, poor man.

He was quite the character, though. Saw this from MSNBC:
Hagman told the (New York) Times that after death he wanted his remains to be "spread over a field and have marijuana and wheat planted and harvest it in a couple of years and then have a big marijuana cake, enough for 200 to 300 people. People would eat a little of Larry."
Now THAT sounds like one hell of a wake.
