David Gail’s Cause Of Death: How Did ‘90210’ Star Die?
While there have been reports that David passed away due to a heart issue, at this time, his family has not confirmed a definitive cause of death.
His death was announced on Saturday on Instagram by Katie Colmenares, his sister.
While she shared her grief with the world, she did not provide a cause, or even the date in which he passed away.
She did, however, post a very moving tribute.
“There’s barely been even a day in my life when you were not with me by my side always my wingman always my best friend ready to face anything and anyone w me,” Ms. Colmenares wrote, adding, “I will hold you so tight every day in my heart you gorgeous loving amazing fierce human being missing you every second of every day forever there will never be another.”
On Monday, however, the Gail family confirmed that David died of complications from sudden cardiac arrest.
Emergency personnel reportedly found Gail unresponsive and performed CPR but were unable to revive him.
“The family has no reason to suspect the cause of his death was anything but heart failure,” a representative for the family explained in a statement to E! News.
“David will be remembered for his love of acting and his absolute passion and dedication to his friends and family. He possessed a unique quality that made everyone feel special in his presence.”
“We are extremely touched by the outpouring of love from David’s dedicated fans and colleagues. We are grateful for all the support received during this very difficult time,” Gail’s mother added in a separate statement.
David Gail’s ‘90210’ Role
While some likely know David best for his role on Port Charles, others remember the 90’s star from his key role in Beverly Hills, 90210.
In season 4, he played Stuart Carson, the son of a rich businessman who becomes engaged to Brenda Walsh, played by Shannen Doherty.
Spoiler alert: the wedding never happens (she belonged with Dylan, after all) and so that was the end of Stuart.
While Shannen, who has her own health battle going on, has yet to make a statement on his passing, several other folks associated with the show have paid their respects.
Pete Ferriero — host and producer of the Beverly Hills 90210 Show podcast — actually shared a clip of David on their show, as he talked about what a wonderful time they had.
