A regular patron and unofficial spokesman for the [url="http://www.heartattackgrill.com/"]Heart Attack Grill[/url] has died of an apparent heart attack, the restaurant's owner said on Monday.[/font][/color][color=#000000][font=Georgia, Times, 'Times New Roman', serif]
John Alleman reportedly suffered a heart attack last week outside the Las Vegas restaurant,[url="http://www.lasvegassun.com/news/2013/feb/11/heart-attack-grill-spokesman-dies-heart-attack/"]according to the Las Vegas Sun[/url]. The 52-year-old was taken off life support on Monday.[/font][/color][color=#000000][font=Georgia, Times, 'Times New Roman', serif]
Alleman, who was not on the restaurant's payroll, inspired the "Patient John" character that appears on the restaurant's menu.[/font][/color][color=#000000][font=Georgia, Times, 'Times New Roman', serif]
"He lived a very full life," Jon Basso, owner of the Heart Attack Grill, told the newspaper. "He will be missed."[/font][/color][color=#000000][font=Georgia, Times, 'Times New Roman', serif]
“I told him if you keep eating like this, it’s going to kill ya,” Basso [url="http://www.lasvegassun.com/news/2013/feb/08/death-knocking-door-heart-attack-grills-unofficial/"]said[/url]. “He’d say, 'I just love your place, Jon.' He’s the only person I know who was probably at the restaurant more than I [was]; he’d be here every darned day.”[/font][/color][color=#000000][font=Georgia, Times, 'Times New Roman', serif]
Alleman is the second unofficial Heart Attack Grill spokesman to die in as many years.[/font][/color][color=#000000][font=Georgia, Times, 'Times New Roman', serif]
In March 2011, Blair River, the restaurant's 575-pound representative, died from complications stemming from pneumonia. He was 29.[/font][/color]
