The news of his death came as a shock to fans as Reubens did not previously disclose he was battling cancer. Reubens’ representatives also released a message from the star: “Please accept my apology for not going public with what I’ve been facing the last six years.” “I have always belt a huge amount of love and respect from my friends, fans and supporters,” the late actor continued. “I have loved you all so much and enjoyed making art for you.” Reubens requested that any “expressions of sympathy” be made in his parents’ honor to organizations, such as Stand Up to Cancer, or institutes researching dementia and Alzheimer’s. His death certificate stated Reubens was cremated and buried at Hollywood Forever Cemetery, in Los Angeles, California, according to Deadline. The iconic cemetery is on the National Register of Historic Places and is the resting place for hundreds who were previously in the entertainment industry. Reubens became a household name with the wildly popular 1985 movie “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure.”View this post on Instagram
