Prolific Author Elmore Leonard Dies, Aged 87
Just under two weeks ago, we reported that crime and western writer Elmore Leonard had suffered a stroke that put him in a hospital in Detroit. The sad news today is that he has died from complications connected to that stroke.
Elmore’s researcher broke the news on the author's Facebook page ... writing, "The post I dreaded to write, and you dreaded to read. Elmore passed away at 7:15 this morning from complications from his stroke. He was at home surrounded by his loving family."
Leonard was the author of more than forty novels, many of which have been translated into movies or television series, including Rum Punch (which became Quentin Tarantino’s Jackie Brown) and 3:10 to Yuma, starring Glenn Ford, which was later remade with Christian Bale and Russell Crowe.
He will be missed very much — I guess it’s time to go read Get Shorty again. How will you remember him?
Here’s a little something to ease the pain...
