    Wow. That is sad to hear. :(

    I had heard about the bicycle accident, but didn't hear anything more, so I assumed he was making a recovery.

    Glad he was surrounded by family.

    Indeed very sad, he will not be forgotten; his book is standard in our company around the globe.

    RIP Stephen

    Wow, sad to hear when something so simple like a bicycle accident turns tragic. I've been through FranklinCovey organizational training and appreciate the system and the principles. It really can help one get organized and learn to better track and prioritize. I wish his family the best during their time of grief.

    Not a good way to go out, for sure. That's very unfortunate to hear for anyone.

    I personally didn't find his title piece (7 habits) to be that good of a book/program, at least for me; it seemed like a lot of a common sense. To each their own however, and for whoever it helped, great!
