Joe Bologna Cause Of Death: How Did Bologna Die?


Longtime Hollywood film star Joe Bologna passed away Sunday morning at the age of 82. He’s been in the movie business for almost four decades. Bologna is known for his starring roles in films such as My Favorite Year and Transylvania 6-5000.

Bologna died Sunday morning after a three-year battle with pancreatic cancer.

But for the younger audience out there, you may remember Bologna as Adam Sandler’s distant dad from the film Big Daddy. He was also the voice of Mr. Start in the 2006 animated film Ice Age: The Meltdown. Bologna was born in Brooklyn, New York, and served in the United States Marine Corp.

Bologna had a very close personal and creative relationship with his wife Renée Taylor. Together, they wrote 22 plays. The couple wrote and starred in the 1971 film Made for Each Other. They even won an Emmy Award for writing Acts of Love and Other Comedies. The couple also co-wrote and co-starred in the film Love Is All There Is.

Renée Taylor and Joe Bologna had one child together named Gabriel.

Bologna is survived by his wife and only son.
