Robert Schimmel

Comedian Robert Schimmel managed to beat cancer but at age 60 has died on Friday night after being hospitalized due to complications from severe injuries due to the car that was driven by his daughter flipping several times attempting to avoid an oncoming car. His 19-year old daughter was also hospitalized but will make a full recovery and his 11-year old son was released the same day without injuries.

His brother, Jeff Schimmel confirmed via Facebook of the tragic news:

ROBERT SCHIMMEL. Son, Brother, Father, Grandfather, Comedian, Generous Man. I have always loved you, admired you, and was proud to be your biggest fan. I will never forget a single moment. R.I.P.
