Elmore Leonard

Author Elmore Leonard passed away on Tuesday, Aug. 20. He was 87 and had recently suffered from a stroke. The best-selling writer's reseacher posted the sad news on Elmore's Facebook page: "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." While his legacy will certainly live on through the many TV shows and movies bases on his books such as 3:10 to Yuma and Get Shorty, the "Dickens of Detroit" will also be remembered through the many readers of his crime books.
