The second unofficial spokesman for the Heart Attack Grill in downtown Las Vegas has died from an apparent heart attack.

John Alleman suffered a heart attack last week as he waited at the bus stop in front of the restaurant, located inside the Neonopolis at Fremont Street and Las Vegas Boulevard.

Alleman was taken off life support shortly after 1 p.m. on Monday, said restaurant owner Jon Basso. He was 52.

“He lived a very full life,” said Basso, who seemed shaken when reached by phone Monday evening. “He will be missed.”

The Pennsylvania native is survived by his only family, his brother Paul. Basso said Alleman had a genetic predisposition for cardiac problems, as both of his parents died of heart attacks in their 50s.

Basso recalled Alleman as a fun-loving man who loved the Heart Attack Grill. The medically themed restaurant is famous for its high-calorie menu that includes a record-breaking 9,982-calorie, 3-pound Quadruple Bypass Burger.

    Nobody gets out alive.

    Euell Gibbons and Jim Fixx tried the other way and ended up just as dead.

    I’d rather go out with a massive heart attack after enjoying an awesome meal than be put on the Liverpool protocol in one of Obama’s hospices for politcal prisoners (and organ donars).

    I wonder if they are taking applications for a new spokes man?

    Ha! Someone remembers Euell Gibbons. “Pine trees,some parts are edible.” as opposed to steak: all parts are edible.
