Myers reportedly passed away Tuesday night (Feb. 19) in West Virginia following a heart-related emergency, according to TMZ. The president of Myers non-profit said the actor’s heart stopped yesterday and while doctors were able to revive him, he fell into a coma and died shortly after.
In December, Myers was hospitalized for pneumonia and released after the new year but returned weeks later after collapsing at home.
An autopsy has been scheduled to determine the cause of death.
Myers, who served in the Army, will receive a military burial in West Virginia.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time.
