Ralphie May died from hypertensive cardiovascular disease.


Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg (FYOU'-den-berg) told The Associated Press on Wednesday the round-faced comedian whose body was found October 6 at a home in Las Vegas died of heart failure due to hypertensive cardiovascular disease. It has been deemed a natural death. Drugs and alcohol did not play a role, although the Coroner notes that May's weight was a contributing factor to his death. "Ralphie had been battling pneumonia and had canceled a handful of dates over the last month in an effort to recover", his manager Judi Marmel confirmed in a statement to Us Weekly at the time. May was found at a private residence in Las Vegas.
