Died from complications following surgery to remove most of his colon. Dr. told him to not be climbing stairs etc till he had time to heal. Ruptured his surgery and bled out.
Hollywood became interested in Will's life and he sold his life's story to a movie company in about 1950 for $10,000. A considerable sum back then. However, apparently no movie was ever made.
