Powers Boothe was suffering from pancreatic cancer, which led to him dying from cardiopulmonary arrest … this according to the death certificate obtained by TMZ.
The “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” and “Sin City” actor died in his sleep at his L.A. home a little more than 2 weeks ago. According to the document the immediate cause was a fatal heart attack, but Powers was also quietly battling cancer for at least 6 months.
The family held a private service in Texas for him. Booth was inducted into the Texas Film Hall of Fame in 2009.
He was 68.
