After an initial autopsy on Mays' body on June 29, Dr. Vernard Adams, the Hillsborough County, Florida medical examiner, stated that Mays suffered from hypertensive heart disease and that a heart attack was the likely cause of his death. A final determination as to the cause of death would not be made until toxicology and tissue tests were complete. Mays' funeral was held July 3, 2009 in his hometown of McKees Rocks, Pennsylvania where he was buried.
The pallbearers for the funeral wore blue shirts and khaki pants at the funeral, much like Mays wore when he advertised his products. According to KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh, he was buried wearing a shirt with the OxiClean logo on it. An inspiration to us all, whether it be through the products he promoted or the unfaltering kindness in his heart. Never forget. June 28, 2009 shall be remembered as the day the infomercial died.
