Its hard to believe its been 25 years since John Candy died. He passed away from a heart attack on March 4th, 1994. He left a big impact on Canada. He was a huge part of SCTV (which was filmed in Edmonton in the early years!) and appeared in some massive movies in the years leading up to his death.

Clearly his impact was felt on the current generation of Canadian talent, as Ryan Reynolds posted this tribute video in memory of John Candy.
