If you watched television in the late 80′s and early 90′s, there’s a good chance you’ll remember the scenes from “the pit” and certainly Mr. Gaines.
The President of Lou’s non-profit tells TMZ, Lou passed away last night in West Virginia at the Charleston Medical Center following a heart-related emergency.
Lou was hospitalized in December for pneumonia but released after New Year’s. He collapsed at home a few weeks later and was hospitalized again.
Lou’s heart stopped yesterday. Doctors were able to revive him, but he fell into a coma and passed just hours later.
