I love John Candy, John Candy comedy, and especially John Candy movies. We all lost John Candy way to soon. Candy died of a heart attack while filming the Western spoof “Wagons East” in Durango, Mexico, on March 4, 1994, aged 43.

This is the 25th anniversary of John Candy's death. Another actor I really enjoy is Ryan Reynolds. Ryan posted this amazing tribute to John Candy on his facebook page. RIP John Candy.
