I had no idea he lived in Tampa.

Some chat boards are discussing his death and wonder if getting hit on the head during the airplane's rough landing could possibly be related to his death in some way. Many are speculating he could have had trauma to his head similar to that of Natasha Richardson. Hopefully his family will have answers Monday. Very sad!

That is sad. There are an awful lot of deaths going on these days with popular people.

By the way, Billy Mays was from Pittsburgh. He was born near where I live now. Our newspapers like to point those things out when someone from here, even if they just passed through, dies

I loved his show "pitchmen". I started out watching it becasue it was filmed in Tampa, but then kept watching becasue it was a good show. His death surprised and saddened me more then MJ's. He was a great guy. My prayers are with his family.

If, you want to see the show "pitchmen", it seems the discovery channel is having a marathon Wednesday.

Although I feel for his family Mays Moderator cut: Trolling Anyways as of today they are still running his commercials! Doesn't the company have any ethics or respect for his family?
