I did some work for miller/coors once, and i remember the meeting planner lady telling me about him, as he had made an appearance at their meeting. She went on about how great of a guy he was and how he had so many ideas for expansion of the character. Really sad to hear

I don't drink beer at all but these were some of my all time favorite commercials. The radio spots were the best if you ask me. RIP

Loved those commercials. Really curious what the cause of death ends up being. 36 is way to young!

Is it me, or is this guy's death getting quite a bit of coverage? It's a main news story on a lot of websites I check throughout the day. I didn't think this guy was that well-known.

Very Sad, RIP.

I think by Name he isn't well Known, but I would say a lot of people 20-30 Know him and loved him in the Beer Commercials. And the younger crowd knew him from The Suite Life on Disney Channel.
