On October 11, 1991, during a break from rehearsals for the Television sitcom, "The Royal Family", comic actor Redd Foxx suffered a fatal heart attack on the set. Reportedly, co-star Della Reese and the rest of the cast and crew thought he was doing his classic "I'm coming, Elizabeth!" fake heart attack routine he made famous on Sanford and Son, even going as far as collapsing to the floor, although that was not part of the usual act. However, this heart attack was real, and Foxx did not regain consciousness. He was 68. He was buried in Las Vegas, at Palm Valley View Memorial Park. On March 12, 1993, his mother Mary Carson (1903-1993), who outlived Foxx, died nearly 17 months to the day after Foxx's death, and was buried just to the right of her famed son. Mary Carson's death came just weeks after her 90th birthday.
