The circle of life is so sad sometimes!

No matter what generation you’re from, you have seen the legendary actor James Garner in action, but he’s now going to be laid to rest.

The Maverick and The Rockford Files star was found dead in his Los Angeles home on Saturday night at 8pm, after an ambulance was sent to his house. He died of natural causes. He reportedly smoked for most of his life, even after suffering a stroke in 2008.

For the younger generation, you probably know Mr. Garner from his work in The Notebook, as Duke.

Our thoughts are with James’ family and friends as they deal with their tragic loss.

    If he died of natural causes and not of lung cancer, why stick in this comment about his smoking habit, Perez?

    One of the classic actors that could act - not like the posers of today.

    Maverick. What a stunning man he was.
    The smoking comment is completely inappropriate in a death announcement. The man lived to be 86, for heaven's sakes.

    This makes me twice sad because it reminds me of my great aunt who absolutely LOVED Rockford Files.

    Loved his shows, watched all of them, so sorry to hear but glad he passed from natural causes. RIP and condolences to his family and friends.

    You know, Perez, you really are a jerk. So he smoked. He didn't die of a smoking-related illness like lung cancer or emphysema. Why mention it? He was 86 when he died of natural causes. For someone who promotes acceptance, why do your comments have to be so fucking judgmental? That would be like you dying of natural causes and then saying…"well he was gay…." Shame on you.
