Ghostbusters Star Harold Ramis Dies
Known for fighting the paranormal in his signature role alongside Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd, Ramis will long be remembered for his clever brand of on-screen humor. The actor, writer and director, whose film work also included Animal House, Stripes and Groundhog Day, died yesterday at age 69. He suffered from vasculitis, a disease where the body’s immune system turns against the veins and arteries. Celebrated as a genuine “nice guy,” colleagues have paid tribute by pointing to both his comedic genius and his ability to inspire. Many will find themselves whistling a familiar 1980s smash hit today and mouthing the words “Who You Gonna Call?” by way of a farewell.
