[Best Syndication News] Paul Newman was reported earlier this year as suffering from lung cancer but he decided not to make any big media announcement, but instead he remained with his family and friend at his farmhouse near Westport, Connecticut. He passed away on September 26th after battling cancer.

Newman’s family released a statement to the media:

“Paul Newman played many unforgettable roles. But the ones for which he was proudest never had top billing on the marquee. Devoted husband. Loving father. Adoring grandfather. Dedicated philanthropist. Our father was a rare symbol of selfless humility, the last to acknowledge what he was doing was special. Intensely private, he quietly succeeded beyond measure in impacting the lives of so many with his generosity. Always and to the end, Dad was incredibly grateful for his good fortune. In his own words: 'It’s been a privilege to be here.' He will be profoundly missed by those whose lives he touched, but he leaves us with extraordinary inspiration to draw upon. During this difficult time, we ask for privacy for our family.”
