I know this happened last December 31st 2013 (new year's eve too :( ) and this was a total downer when I heard the news of his sad passing due to complications during open heart surgery. I loved watching Fresh Prince in the early nineties and he was part of great cast. Ironically I was watching Alfonso Ribeiro who played Carlton a month earlier on I'm a celebrity and he talked about how he enjoyed being part of such a cult series but never mentioned he was Ill out of respect I suppose. Very sad, and at only 68yrs too. :|
