Robert B. Parker Death?

Robert B. Parker, the guy who wrote the Spencer books and one of America's preeminent crime writers, has died today.
Beginning with "The Gudwulf Manuscript" in 1973 and running through 2009's "The Professional," the Spencer series included almost 40 books. All great books.
Reading about Robert death's details the LA Times says Robert B. Parker was found dead sitting at his desk in his Cambridge, Mass. home. I wonder what the cause of his death was. Anyway, a big loss today.
