Keith Cass

A true borderline case… you could argue that Keith Cass was only “famous for being ill”, but I feel he did enough in his life to earn a frontpage post rather than relegation to the obituary vault. Cardiff-born Cass was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 2006 and promptly founded the Red Sock awareness campaign encouraging men to be aware of the dangers and risk factors associated with the disease. In late 2018 he made headlines after selling tickets to his upcoming funeral, making ¬£500k in the process with the promise of lobster, champagne and crisps.

Thankfully he died having seen his son, Big Cass, make his return to professional wrestling in Ring of Honor along with technically-not-a-convicted-rapist Enzo Amore.
