He sadly committed suicide in 1972.

The death was officially a suicide since he left behind three gentlemanly suicide notes, which read:
"Dear World, I am leaving because I am bored. I feel I have lived long enough. I am leaving you with your worries in this sweet cesspool. Good luck." (with his signature under the message)
