Howard Stern‘s radio personality known as “Evil Dave Letterman” has died, the Chicago Tribune has reported.
The “wack pack” member, 63, whose real name is David VanDam, passed away on Tuesday, July 3, during Stern’s 4th of July vacation week.
VanDam was a voice impressionist who began appearing on The Howard Stern Show in 1999 right up until his death.

He was called Letterman because he sounded exactly like the voice of the late night talk show host.
VanDam performed a myriad of crude skits on the Stern radio show, including those dealing with such controversial topics as racism, homophobia, pedophilia, and murder!
One sad fan, Mariann F. from Brooklyn, tweeted about his death, writing, “The great wonderful Evil Dave passed away.”

A visitation period is scheduled for today, Saturday, July 7, at the Donnellan Family Funeral Home in Skokie, Illinois.
