Screen legend Leslie Nielsen passed away at a Ft. Lauderdale, Florida hospital on Sunday.
His nephew, Doug Nielsen, says that Leslie died of complications from pneumonia. "Today at 5:30 with his friends and his wife by his side, he just fell asleep and passed away," says his nephew.
The Canadian thespian was 84 years old.
Acting for over 50 years, he will forever be remembered (by us) for his loveably goofy roles in Airplane and The Naked Gun films.
