James Gammon battled cancer two and a half years ago. It came back aggressively about a month ago in his adrenal glands and liver, according to his wife, Nancy. Unfortunately, James Gammon was too weak to do surgery or chemotherapy, so he choose to do hospice at home for his remaining days.

James Gammon stood out with key roles in many films including "Urban Cowboy," "The Milagro Beanfield War," "Leaving Normal," "Ironweed," "Silverado" and "Cold Mountain."
