he was only 52, fairly healthy.....non smoker,
no existing health problems....
had not felt well yesterday- took the afternoon off...
one report said that there was a call to 911 about trouble breathing....

and yes, some folks out west are worried...

time will tell what happened...very sad...
do read the attached article- he worked with many charities...and gave with all his heart....truly a good man....

namaste...

I'd never heard of him, but he sure was a very talented singer/impersonator.

Clearly he shined in his lifetime.

thanks fran....
a bunch of folks out west knew him...or had gone to see him- utah and nevada and calif folks knew him- he was also very giving-
did a ton of charity work...

I remember seeing him on tv when we lived in cali....that is all I remember- I think it was some kind of golf event...but this video really shows how amazing he was....

I remember him in Bull Durham and his image was on the Mirage for nearly a decade. I'm sure I've got a picture somewhere with him in it.

i saw him last time i was in Las Vegas (around 10 years ago), i am not big on impersonators but he was quite entertaining

so sad.......

he was pretty amazing...some of my friends out there were bummed- said it made no sense ( they worked with him on charities- said he was healthy- not a party guy...)

sad..really sad.

Gans was an amazing impressionist, had a great sense of humor; his passing is a major loss
