Burt Reynolds Dead at 82

Update Sept 7:

Burt Reynolds was an acting legend and a bigger than life character on the movie screen, but to many throughout the Treasure Coast and South Florida he was kind, down to earth, and a friend. He died yesterday after suffering a heart attack at his home in Tequesta.


Legendary actor Burt Reynolds has died, according to multiple sources. The Oscar-nominated actor died of cardiac arrest, according to his agent.

According to the Martin County Sheriff’s Office, dispatchers received a 911 call from his home at 12:47 p.m. The caller told dispatchers the 82-year-old man had difficulty breathing and needed medical attention. The first crews on scene made contact with Reynolds and his caretaker before rushing him to the hospital where he died.


The actor reportedly passed away at Jupiter Medical Center.
