Steve McQueen most likely passed away from Malignant Mesothelioma. Malignant Mesothelioma was his cause of death,apparently.

marcus28Dec 5, 2013

Steve McQueen’s cause of death was either Mesothelioma or a Heart Attack Following Surgery. Heart Attack Following Surgery was his cause of death in the Internet Movie Database. In other sources, like this one, his cause of death is Mesothelioma. I am unsure of how Steve McQueen passed away.

Steve McQueen is one of the most best actors in the world. Unfortunately, he passed away at the age of 50,such a young age. You have starred in a whole bunch of great classic movies ever made. Rest In Peace, Steve McQueen, The King Of Cool.

Neile was his true love, the mother of his children. Don`t be ridiculous - he didn`t have a chance to divorce Barbara Minty because he was dying! Read about him before you make comments like you just did.

I can`t express how much I love this man and how much he means to me. He is a brilliant brilliant actor and one of THE coolest men EVER. Plus he was a great father. He`s my all time idol. He died waaaay too young and that still breaks my heart and makes me cry. God rest his soul!!!

A very cool actor who died far to young.
