Author, motivational speaker and businessman Stephen R. Covey has passed away as the result of a bicycle accident that occurred several months ago. Mr. Covey was 79 years old when he passed away early Monday morning in an Idaho hospital, according to a statement released by his family. The bicycle accident, which was originally thought to be minor, had confined Mr. Covey to a hospital since the accident occurred on April 19th of this year. There was a small amount bleeding on the frontal lobe of the brain that occurred when Mr. Covey fell of his bike, though he was wearing a helmet, yet apparently the damage was more significant and Mr. Covey never recovered therefrom.
