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."
sounds like one hell of a wake.
