Jimmy Rave Passes Away At The Age Of 39

Fightful is sad to report that Jimmy Rave (James Michael Guffey) has passed away at the age of 39.

In November 2020, Rave revealed that doctors found an infection in his arm which forced his left arm to be amputated. In October, Rave revealed that due to a MRSA infection, both of his legs had been amputated. The amputations were a result of Rave's struggles with addiction over the years.
