Redd Foxx

Redd Foxx became famous for clutching his chest and calling out to his dead television wife Elizabeth as he pretended to have a heart attack on the hit 70’s show “Sanford and Son.” In a tragic and ironic twist, the legendary comedian suffered a massive and fatal heart attack in 1991 while on the set of television show “The Royal Family,” co-starring Della Reese. He was rushed to the hospital and died later that evening. Foxx was 68 years old.
