    RIP
    He made a huge contribution to the comic playbook of my lifetime. Sad loss.
    reports are that he couldn't recover from complications that evolved from diverticulitis.
    Bill Murray and he were genius together....pure genius.

    That's so sad. He was great.

    I'm gonna watch Stripes when I get home for the millionth time.

    A big R.I.P. from me. Stripes is my favorite movie of all time. 69 seems young! Sad.

    Damn......GB and Stripes were favorites of mine. Love him in Stripes though, what a fantastic movie.

    Shame Bill Murray is such a dick... he probably will not come to the funeral either. There is a reason they don't work together and are not even friends anymore.

    I am personally quite saddened by this news, Ramis was classic.

    I just spotted this on Yahoo before I came here--I'm really shocked and saddened. A brilliant comedic mind who wrote, directed and acted in some of the biggest and best comedies of the last 35 years, not to mention Second City and SCTV. And a proud Chicagoan, too. RIP.:(

    Harold Ramis pretty much shaped modern comedy. He was involved in some respect with SCTV, Animal House, Caddyshack, National Lampoon's Vacation, Stripes, Ghostbusters, and Groundhog Day.

    An aside, I (kinda) worked with him at a recording studio years ago, and he seemed like a genuinely nice person.

    RIP, good Sir. You will be missed.

    That's a sad loss.

    I'm in the minority (as usual) who think that 'Year One' was comic genius.
