“His family and friends are forever grateful for the time we got to spend with him – for his warmth, his legendary sense of humor, and his singular ability to make every day into something worth talking about,” the statement said.
“We thank his fans and admirers for their incredible support over his 60-year career and ask for privacy as we mourn his loss.” (Reuters)
