Dear Dawlish. Com contributors. Elvis Presley died on Friday morning, as a result of a life most can only dream of. Love him or hate him, Elvis helped to care for his wife of 52 years, for the last 7 years.  This undoubtedly shortened his remaining days, but he wouldn't have wanted it any other way.
