I just saw my local news and it must have just happened today. He died of lung cancer that he had been battling for awhile. He was 67, I think. I haven't seen anything about it online yet so I can't post a link.
He was such a nice guy. I guess he had a very progressive inoperable type of cancer. They said on the news that he was originally from Canada and that he didn't obtain his U.S. citizenship until two years ago. He also was married 5 times. I think he was very handsome. He surely will be missed.
I was really shocked to hear about it today. He was a supreme journalist who was very real and hands-on. I'm glad he died in his home, with his family, and very peacefully. He went just the perfect way, although much too soon.
