Today is March 4, and it marks the 25th anniversary of John Candy’s death. Yesterday, Ryan Reynolds shared a tribute to the late comedian. On Twitter, Ryan said, “It’s the 25th anniversary of John Candy’s passing. We cooked up a small tribute to a comedic genius and Canadian hero. If you haven’t seen much of his work, take a look at his films. He was a treasure.” He truly was one of the best!”

Rick Mercer says Candy was an influential and beloved part of his generation and his legacy in comedy and film continues to endure. And Eugene Levy, who starred alongside Candy on SCTV and several films, says Candy was a gifted comedic actor who cared deeply about people. Born in Newmarket, Ontario, Candy died on March 4th, 1994 — at age 43 — after suffering a heart attack while shooting a film in Mexico.
