His second wife, Hafidzah Khasbullah told mStar Online that Ismail had sought treatment last Tuesday after suffering high fever for 10 days.

His body was brought to his home in Taman Nusa Subang Bistari, Shah Alam, and buried before Zuhur at the Kota Damansara Muslim cemetery.
Besides Hafidzah, Ismail leaves behind his first wife, Zaiton Osman and seven children.
He was the Veteran Artist Association president with almost 20 years involvement in the field.
