‘Evil Dead 2’ actor Danny Hicks passed away on Wednesday, four weeks after announcing that he has been diagnosed with cancer. He was 68.
Hicks’ convention management team, Full Empire Productions, announced on Facebook, writing, “Danny passed away at his home in CA. We love you Danny, rest easy my friend.”
Hicks played as Jake in Sam Raimi’s comedic horror sequel “Evil Dead II”. Earlier this month, Hicks shared he was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer on Facebook.
“To all of the people that I never got to meet, and the die hard fans that enjoyed my work. I have some bad news” he wrote. “I have been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. I have approximately 1 to 3 years to live. But I gotta tell ya, I sure as hell packed a whole bunch of living into my 68 years,” he added.
Such sudden deaths are really hard to accept. He was just diagnosed with cancer and after 4 weeks he just left the world. To all the fans of Danny Hicks out there, all we are left with are good memories of his movies.
