He gave up the ghost on Friday morning following a cardiac arrest.
His rep told E! news that, “Ralphie had been battling pneumonia and had cancelled a handful of dates over the last month in an effort to recover. “Earlier this morning at a private residence in Las Vegas his body was discovered, cause of death is cardiac arrest.”
He is survived by his wife Lahna Turner and children April June May and August James May.
Back in 2003, Ralphie received a huge break when he appeared on the NBC reality competition show Last Comic Standing. He finished in second place during the first season. Ralphie would later receive comedy specials on Comedy Central and Netflix.
