A photo of Roy Horn of Siegfried and Roy with their first performing animal - a cheetah named Chico. They later became famous for their tiger act in Las Vegas.

On April 28, 2020, Roy's publicist stated that he "tested positive for the virus that causes COVID-19 and is currently responding well to treatment". However, his condition deteriorated and he died at the age of 75 on May 8, 2020, at Mountain View Hospital in Las Vegas. The duo's spokesman, Dave Kirvin, announced his death and said it was due to complications from the disease. Siegfried stated that "the world has lost one of the greats of magic, but I have lost my best friend".
