28 years ago He Had no Smoker's Delight



Actor, singer and entertainer Sammy Samuel George Davis Jr. dies of throat cancer at the age of 65 in Beverly Hills, California, United States.


Davis often smoked four packs of cigarettes a day as an adult. When told that laryngectomy offered him the best chance of survival Davis replied he would rather keep his voice than have a part of his throat removed; he subsequently was treated with a combination of chemotherapy and radiation. His entire larynx however was ultimately removed during surgery in March 1990.
