Perhaps I should have said passed on. Died. Bit the dust. Bottom line is he is not alive any longer.

Vast Public Indifference: 101 Ways to Say "Died"

Leslie Nielsen had a cool sense of humor. The southern version would be

Another beloved icon gone. RIP, Leslie Neilsen. Thank you for both the dramatic and the comedic.

I grew up knowing him as a dramatic actor and was so surprised at Airplane!. He was so good.

I enjoyed Leslie Nielsen movies because they were sooo silly that they were funny!! I love really silly humor. You just can't help but laugh! He will be missed by everyone who loves to laugh.

Yeah, and he did that stuff so well! His dry delivery was flawless. "Surely you don't mean that?"..."I don't and stop calling me Shirley"...lol. The Naked Gun series was hilarious too. I will definitely miss him. RIP Leslie.

LOL. Okay. I think its just a "black" thing to say "passed" instead of "died" or "passed away". No biggie.
