Charlie Murphy Passes Away

Comedian Charlie Murphy has passed away.

Charlie was brother to famous actor/comedian Eddie Murphy. Charlie was likely most famous to most people (including myself) for his hilarious appearances on Chappelle’s Show.

Murphy died after a battle with leukemia.

His family released the following statement according to the Hollywood Reporter, “Our hearts are heavy with the loss today of our son, brother, father, uncle and friend Charlie. Charlie filled our family with love and laughter and there won’t be a day that goes by that his presence will not be missed. Thank you for the outpouring of condolences and prayers. We respectfully ask for privacy during this time of great loss for all of us.”

Thoughts and prayers are with Charlie Murphy’s family and friends.
