Lee Siegfried, known by fans as Crazy Cabbie, has passed away at the age of 55. Siegfried (born Lee Anthony Mroszak on December 11, 1968), was a radio DJ originally from Minnesota. He had been suffering from an intense illness which had left him paralyzed in recent years.

Cane Peterson, fellow disc jockey, Minnesotan and friend of the diseased, kept fans updated as things turned dire for the star. In a post from just 1 day ago he writes:

Hey radio friends and fans of Crazy Cabbie (Lee Siegfried)…I just got a text from his girlfriend. He isn’t doing well. They took him to the hospital on March 17th, and he just hasn’t rebounded. They’ve made the decision to proceed with hospice. He’s awake, but not alert. Lexi says she has not left his side, and he is very much loved. Please lets all pray for a miracle. 

In 2020, it was reported that the radio DJ  suffered from GBS-CIPD, a rare nerve disorder that can result in paralysis.
