Siegfried Fischbacher, one half of the legendary illusion team Siegfried & Roy, has died from cancer.
His publicist, Dave Kirvin, confirmed Fischbacher’s death early Thursday. Fischbacher was 81.
“Funeral services will be private with plans for a public memorial in the future,” a statement from Kirvin said.
Sources indicate Fischbacher died last night from pancreatic cancer around midnight at Little Bavaria in Las Vegas.
Earlier this week the Review-Journal reported Fischbacher had been fighting pancreatic cancer in Las Vegas. He had a malignant tumor removed in a 12-hour surgery.
Fischbacher had told his sister Dolore that he is in the care of two hospice nurses and has asked to be cared for at his Las Vegas home. The German publication Bild reported Thursday morning that Dolore, 78, who lives as a nun in Munich, said: “He fell asleep gently and peacefully,” adding, “The death of Siegfried was a redemption.”
