Wyatt Knight, who starred in the 1980s “Porky’s” films, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in Kula, Maui, on Oct. 25, 2011.
Knight was 56, and several years earlier had undergone radiation treatments and a bone-marrow transplant for stage 4 non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, which left him in “physical and emotional pain,” according to a family statement issued at the time.
“He was tired of the pain, and after much contemplation, chose to end his life in a beautiful and a serene place,” his wife, Silvina, said in the statement.
