And now Billy Mays… R.I.P.
First it was Ed McMahon, then the two Armenian actors Aram and Gegham, followed by Farrah Fawcet and MJ. But now, Billy Mays joins the group, having passed away at the age of 50.
Billy Mays was pronounced dead at 7:45 A.M. today, next to his wife, Deborah. Mays had just returned from Philadelphia, where he shot a new OxiClean commercial. The irony of the story is that he had just landed from a plane which had suffered a blown tire. “He told a local TV station, ‘All of a sudden as we hit you know it was just the hardest hit, all the things from the ceiling started dropping. It hit me on the head, but I got a hard head.'”
Mays was doing fine when he returned home, but his wife stated that he wasn’t feeling well at night. He was going to have his fourth hip replacement on Monday. An autopsy is due by tomorrow afternoon.
