the angels— Beloved game show host Bob Barker’s cause of death has been determined to be Alzheimer’s disease, according to a death certificate.
Buck died at his home in Los Angeles on August 26 at the age of 99.
A death certificate issued by Los Angeles County listed Robert William Barker’s cause of death as “Alzheimer’s disease.” It also lists health factors such as high blood pressure, hypothyroidism, and hyperlipidemia.
It’s unclear how long Buck has struggled with Alzheimer’s disease, as it’s not something he’s discussed publicly.
His longtime partner, Nancy Burnett, told Witness News in a statement: “Bob Barker was a regular participant in conversations and bedside exercises until two months before his death.”
