Marvel Comics icon Stan Lee died due to cardiac arrest, respiratory and congestive heart failure, according to his death certificate from the Los Angeles Department of Health. The certificate was obtained by people.com.
Lee suffered from aspiration pneumonia. In late February, he revealed he was battling pneumonia, explaining to TMZ that he had to cancel several appearances because of his illness.
The release of his death certificate comes two weeks after Lee died on November 12 at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre here. He was 95.
On November 16, Lee’s POW! Entertainment said the comic book legend was laid to rest “in accordance to his final wishes”.
“As we all continue to process our feelings of loss at the passing of a true legend, many are asking if there will be a memorial in Stan’s honour,” the company said in a statement. (IANS)
