Heart failure was the ultimate killer of Hugh Hefner. It has been discovered that the 91-year-old founder of Playboy magazine died at home last week of heart arrest and respiratory failure.
The death certificate obtained by The Blast states that Hugh also suffered from septicemia, a severe blood illness, and recently fought off a type of E. coli that was so powerful it was resistant to medications.
Previous reports said that Hugh, who passed away this past weekend, was “enjoying life” and “kept up his routine” until the end.
‘Hef was enjoying life to the fullest,’ the person claimed. He maintained his regimen and his social life. He was as intelligent as a whip. He had not stopped making executive judgments.
Maybe he didn’t make it to every party. In contrast, he cherished that they continued to be held in his residence. The Hef was still the Hef.
Hugh’s body was found at the infamous Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles, California, on Wednesday (28.09.17).
A representative at the time said, “Hugh M. Hefner, the American icon who in 1953 introduced the world to Playboy magazine and built the company into one of the most recognizably American global brands in history, peacefully passed away from natural causes at his home, The Playboy Mansion, surrounded by loved ones.”
Playboy Enterprises chief creative officer and Hugh’s son Cooper Hefner reflected on his father’s “extraordinary and consequential life” and that he will “greatly miss” him.
In a statement, he reflected on his father’s life and legacy, saying, “My father lived an exceptional and impactful life as a media and cultural pioneer and a leading voice behind some of the most significant social and cultural movements of our time in advocating free speech, civil rights, and sexual freedom.”
He established the values and principles around which the iconic and long-lasting Playboy brand was built.
He will be sorely missed by his family and friends and everyone here at Playboy Enterprises, especially his wife Crystal, my sister Christie, my brothers David and Marston, and myself.
