He was also the recipient of the Annie Glenn Award for his outstanding service to the stuttering community, and was also inducted to the National Stuttering Association's Hall of Fame. He was later diagnosed with lung cancer and soon went into intensive treatment.

He maintained a positive attitude throughout, declaring that "whatever God wants is fine by me... I've had the very best life. I have tasted beauty." He died in his Los Angeles home on December 3, 1999, at the age of 57. "I hope that the kids, while they sing along to my songs or dance to it, feel that life is not that bad at all.
