CBS icon Andy Rooney - who only stopped appearing on 60 Minutes at the beginning of October after a nearly 60 year stint, passed away last night due to "serious complications" following a minor surgery at the age of 92.

Executive producer Jeff Fager says in a statement:

"It's a sad day for everybody here at CBS News … it's hard to imagine not having Andy around. He loved his life and he lived it on his own terms. We will miss him very much."

So sad.

We're just comforted to know that he was able to stay at a job he loved right until the very end.

Our thoughts go out to all of his friends, family, and loved ones.

May he R.I.P.

    I grew up watching Andy Rooney, and even if I didn't agree with what he had to say, he always made me stop and think. Such was his talent and his greatness. I'm going to miss him and I hope that 60 Minutes does an appropriate tribute to a man who contributed so much to that show.

    If wealthy, old people retired so that someone else could have their job, maybe the unemployment rate wouldn't be so high. Old people who keep working for whatever selfish reason need to get out of the way. It took him getting sick at the age of 92 for him to finally leave.

    Re: likewhocares – Yes, let's park all older, wise people with the most to offer away in wheelchairs somewhere, while people with no respect for the contributions of seniors fill the airwaves with self absorbed chatter. The network gave Rooney a small platform out of respect and gratitude for the decades of top tier work he gave them. They didn't send him to the glue factory, and I wholeheartedly admire that.
