The casino world was saddened this week with the death of entertainer Danny Gans, a headliner at Encore at Wynn Las Vegas. He apparently died in his sleep and was found by his wife.

Steve Wynn, chief executive of Wynn Resorts, called Gans' death "a profoundly tragic event that leaves us all sad and speechless."

"The loss of Danny to his wife Julie, his children, Amy, Andrew and Emily is at this moment impossible to comprehend," Wynn said in a statement.

Gans did imitations of celebrities ranging from Tony Bennett to Al Pacino to Sarah Vaughan.
