Sad news. Louise Penny's husband Michael Whitehead has passed away at the age of 82. He was such a lovely man--witty, kind, and so proud of Louise. I always enjoyed talking with him at conventions.
Dr. Michael Whitehead, former Director of Hematology at the Montreal
Children's Hospital and husband of bestselling author Louise Penny, died
at his home Sunday night at the age of 82.
Whitehead's health had been declining over the last few years, ever since he was diagnosed with dementia.
"Michael passed away last night, at home, at peace, with love," his
wife Louise Penny posted on her Facebook page on Monday afternoon.
"'It's not so much that his heart stopped, as that he'd finally given it
all away. Surprised by joy."
