Luna also highlighted in his lengthy video that he got it from close contact with people and that he had pneumonia. In addition, he claimed to be a double amputee and a diabetic.

It is unclear if his children have any of the underlying health conditions. However, he confirmed that their symptoms were not as severe as his.

Luna's family started a GoFundMe page for his funeral. At press time, it has raised over $3,500.

Before his death, Luna had been building quite the reputation for himself. The comedian reportedly performed at several local clubs around Los Angeles.

Speaking to news sources, Luna's son, Jose Talavera, confirmed that the entire family had been sick. However, Luna's underlying health conditions made things worse for him. Talavera added:

"For his funeral, he doesn't want anyone crying so we're going to put together a show because that's what he would have wanted."
