He did much better than some of the other French theorists who came to prominence in the days of structuralism. Roland Barthes run over by a milk cart, Louis Althusser incarcerated for murdering his wife after undergoing analysis with Lacan. And so on.
I've read very little of Levi-Strauss's actual work, but his outlook was important and very influential in dethroning phenomenology and existentialism - philosophies perceived as individualistic (or subjectivist).

“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”
