A Tribute to Billy Mays. Mays' first marriage was to Dolores "Dee Dee" Mays, which ended in divorce. His daughter was three years old at the time of his death. In an interview during the presidential campaign , Mays revealed himself to be a Republican.
Mays was found unresponsive by his wife in his Tampa, Florida home on the morning of June 28, After an initial autopsy on Mays' body on June 29, Vernard Adams, the Hillsborough County, Florida medical examiner , stated that Mays suffered from hypertensive heart disease and that heart disease was the likely cause of his death.
According to a toxicology report released August 7, , heart disease was the "primary cause of death" and cocaine was listed as a "contributory cause of death. We believe it contains speculative conclusions that are frankly unnecessary and tend to obscure the conclusion that Billy suffered from chronic, untreated hypertension" and said in the release that they were considering "an independent evaluation of the autopsy results". The medical examiner "concluded that cocaine use caused or contributed to the development of his heart disease, and thereby contributed to his death," the office said in a press release.
The office said Mays last used cocaine in the few days before his death but was not under the influence of the drug when he died.

According to subsequent news reports  the toxicology tests also showed levels of painkillers hydrocodone , oxycodone , and tramadol , as well as anti-anxiety drugs alprazolam and diazepam.

Mays suffered from hip problems and was scheduled for hip replacement surgery the day after he was found dead. The pallbearers wore blue shirts and khaki pants at the funeral, much like Mays wore when he advertised his products. In the immediate aftermath of his death, many companies pulled ads featuring Mays from the air.
His catchphrase and infomercials made Billy Mays a notable icon in popular culture, with many shows, YouTube Videos, and films lampooning him.
