Danny Hicks, an actor who starred in the horror classic Evil Dead II, has died after battling cancer. "But I gotta tell ya, I sure as hell packed a whole bunch of living into my 68 years", he had written on Facebook back then.
Hicks' management team, Full Empire Promotions, confirmed news of his death on Facebook. We love you Danny, rest easy my friend.
'I have been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, ' he wrote, adding, 'I have approximately 1 to 3 years to live'.
A crowdfunding campaign launched by his friend and Full Empire Productions boss Dominic Mancini to help cover Hicks' medical bills more than doubled its original goal, with Mancini giving one of his last updates on June 16 as he revealed the actor wasn't sleeping or eating because he was in so much pain. As he has been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, and he has not too many regrets.
Danny added: "I got no change coming back that's for sure. Ok, gotta go. I'm gonna find out just what in the hell is going on down in that fruit cellar".
"I last spoke with Danny on June 16th". I could not keep him on the phone longer than 3 or 4 minutes. Before he hung up, I asked him to hang on and assured him that he did not have to reply. He was a part of our family and a great person to spend time with. While I am not religious, I honestly believe that all good things happen to good people. He continued collaborating with director Raimi in films like "Darkman", "Intruder' and even featured in the Tobey Maguire starrer "Spider-Man 2'".
