  • Although a stopped heart is listed as his official cause of death, more details have surfaced regarding the death of James Avery.

    TMZ, which obtained the actor’s death certificate, reports that Avery, who was best known for playing Uncle Phil on “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” suffered from several major medical problems for years before dying from complications after open heart surgery.

    Among the conditions Avery suffered from were severe coronary heart disease, end-stage kidney disease and type-2 diabetes.

    The 68-year-old’s official cause of death is listed as cardiorespiratory arrest (i.e. a stopped heart).
