Today was a sad day for a lot of people as a comedic hero passed away. Harold died at 12:53 a.m. in his home from complications from autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis, a rare disease that involves swelling of the blood vessels that began in 2010.
Harold leaves behind a formidable list of achievements, with writing credits on amazing and memorable comedies like “National Lampoon’s Animal House”, “Stripes”, and “Ghostbusters” (as Egon), plus such directing some other comedy classics like “Caddyshack”, “National Lampoon’s Vacation”, “Groundhog Day”, “Analyze This”, and “Analyze That.” He most recently directed some episodes of NBC’s “The Office” which is one of our favorite shows of all time.
It’s sad to see such great people pass, but in this case, he will always be around with his unforgettable works.
In honor of a legend…
Harold Ramis, RIP.
