“Andrew passed away unexpectedly from natural causes shortly after midnight this morning in Los Angeles,” the Big Government post read. “We have lost a husband, a father, a son, a brother, a dear friend, a patriot and a happy warrior.”
It continued: “Andrew lived boldly, so that we more timid souls would dare to live freely and fully, and fight for the fragile liberty he showed us how to love.”
Joel B. Pollak, the editor-in-chief and in-house counsel at Breitbart.com, confirmed the news in an email to The Daily Caller. Katie Bosland, an ABC producer, tweets, “LA Coroner’s office has confirmed to @ABC that Andrew Breitbart passed away last night at UCLA Medical Center.”
Pollak said he couldn’t immediately provide more details on Breitbart’s passing.
