    Early life and career

    Candy was born in 1950 in New­mar­ket, On­tario. The son of Sid­ney James Candy and Evan­ge­line (Aker) Candy, he was brought up in a work­ing-class Roman Catholic fam­ily. Candy's fa­ther was of Eng­lish and Scot­tish de­scent,[citation needed] while his mother was of Pol­ish and Ukrain­ian de­scent.[citation needed] Candy stud­ied at Neil Mc­Neil Catholic High School, later en­rolled in the Cen­ten­nial Com­mu­nity Col­lege to study jour­nal­ism, and went to Mc­Mas­ter Uni­ver­sity for high...

    1980s career

    Among Candy's SCTV char­ac­ters were un­scrupu­lous street-beat TV per­son­al­ity Johnny LaRue, 3-D hor­ror au­teur Doc­tor Tongue, syco­phan­tic and eas­ily amused talk-show side­kick William B. Williams, and Mel­onville's cor­rupt Mayor Tommy Shanks. Other char­ac­ters in­cluded the cheer­ful Leu­ton­ian clar­inetist Yosh Shmenge, who was half of the Happy Wan­der­ers and the sub­ject of the mock­u­men­tary The Last Polka, folksy fishin' mu­si­cian Gil Fisher, hand­some if ac­cent-chal­leng...

    Later years and death

    In the early 1990s, Candy's ca­reer went into de­cline after he ap­peared in a string of crit­i­cal and com­mer­cial fail­ures, in­clud­ing Noth­ing but Trou­ble (for which he was nom­i­nated for a Razzie as "worst sup­port­ing ac­tress", play­ing a woman), Deliri­ous, and Once Upon a Crime, al­though he did ap­pear in major suc­cesses such as Rookie of the Year (un­cred­ited), The Res­cuers Down Under, Home Alone, and Cool Run­nings. Candy at­tempted to rein­vig­o­rate his act­ing ca­reer by...

    Candy's fu­neral was held at St. Mar­tin of Tours Catholic Church in Los An­ge­les. Candy was en­tombed in the mau­soleum at Holy Cross Ceme­tery in Cul­ver City, Cal­i­for­nia. His crypt lies just above fel­low actor Fred Mac­Mur­ray. On March 18, 1994, a spe­cial memo­r­ial ser­vice for Candy, pro­duced by his for­mer im­proviza­tion troupe, the Sec­ond City, was broad­cast across Canada. Wag­ons East! was com­pleted using a stunt dou­ble and spe­cial ef­fects and re­leased five months after Candy's death. His final com­pleted film was Cana­dian Bacon, a satir­i­cal com­edy by Michael Moore that was re­leased a year after Candy's death. Candy played Amer­i­can sher­iff Bud Boomer, who led an "in­va­sion" of Canada. Candy recorded a voice for the TV film The Magic 7 in the early 1990s. The film re­mained in pro­duc­tion for years due to an­i­ma­tion dif­fi­cul­ties and pro­duc­tion de­lays, and it was shelved. Candy was in­ducted into Canada's Walk of Fame. In May 2006, Candy be­ca...
