He died at 42. I see no disrespect since there is no age indicated implies no longer here. RIP John you were a great artist. Fredo was a great performance. Meryl must miss you deeply.

How could John Cazale possibly be 72?? He died in around 1978 after The Deer Hunter - he was engaged to Streep at the time. Am i the only one who thinks its a bit disrespectful to imply he is still alive?
