I am kind of bummed. I didn't realize the guy was 82. Smokey and the Bandit was one of the first movies I watched.

That's sad.  He was a patron for the arts for many years down here in South Florida.  He's sorta the biggest celebrity produced by my hometown and just a month ago he held "An Evening with Burt Reynolds" event down here, which I suppose might well have been his last public appearance.  It's a bit of a local legend that his acting career was started at the community college I began at and he was enticed into it by his theater teacher, Watson Duncan, who is locally famous in his own right, honored by both the college's theater and a middle school named in his honor.

Yeah I just found out a few minutes ago.  This sucks, but at the same time, he was lucky to live to 82.   He lived a full life and made some great movies.
