Rodney Dangerfield
November 22, 1921 - October 5, 2004

Dangerfield's headstone at Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles

"On April 8, 2003, Dangerfield underwent brain surgery to improve blood flow in preparation for heart valve-replacement surgery on August 24, 2004. Upon entering the hospital, he uttered another characteristic one-liner when asked how long he would be hospitalized: 'If all goes well, about a week. If not, about an hour and a half.'

"In September 2004, it was revealed that Dangerfield had been in a coma for several weeks. Afterward, he began breathing on his own and showing signs of awareness when visited by friends. However, on October 5, 2004, he died at the UCLA Medical Center from complications of the surgery he had undergone in August. He was a month and a half short of his 83rd birthday. Dangerfield was interred in the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles. His headstone reads, 'Rodney Dangerfield... There goes the neighborhood.'
