Richard Biggs passed away suddenly on May 22, 2004 from a ruptured aortic aneurism (tear in the major vessel carrying blood from the heart)
I will now post what J. Michael Straczynsky posted with regards to the death of this wonderful man...
May 22, 2004 "I was awakened today with several phone calls from cast members and Doug to pass along the terrible news that this morning, Richard Biggs passed away.
We're still gathering information, so take none of this as firm word, but what seems to have happened, happened quickly. He woke up, got up out of bed...and went down. The paramedics who showed up suggested it was either an aneurysm or a massive stroke.
His family members have been informed, and all of the the cast have, as far as we can determine, also been informed.
This is a terrible loss for all of us. Richard was a consummate professional but more than that he was an honorable, stand-up guy. If he gave you his word on something, you never had to wonder about it afterward. He was always helpful and supportive of all the cast, even those who only came in for one episode, always with a ready smile and determined to do whatever it took to make the scene work. He was, quite simply, a terrific guy, and everyone here s just devastated at the news.
More word as this develops. We may try to have some kind of fund raiser to help give nwhatever assistance may be helpful for his kids.
