John Candy died one of the saddest celebrity deaths of all-time. The SCTV great was down in Mexico filming Wagons East!, and after cooking some lasagna for his assistants, he went to sleep in his hotel bed. He died shortly thereafter of a heart attack. That was 20 years ago today. If Candy was still alive, he’d be only 63 years old, and hopefully still making comedies as timeless as National Lampoon’s Vacation, Stripes, Little Shop of Horrors, Spaceballs, Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, and Home Alone. Alas.

Today, let’s look back at some of Candy’s finest moments in GIF form.
