7 Habits author Stephen R Covey dies
Stephen R. Covey, a former BYU business management professor, motivational speaker and author of the 1989 book 'The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People' died early Monday, prompting worldwide reaction.
- It is with sadness, a heavy heart, and deep respect that I share with you that our beloved friend and co-founder, Dr. Stephen R. Covey, passed away early this morning. Most are aware of the bike accident Stephen was involved in several months ago. The effects of this accident ultimately resulted in his passing. I received the following statement from Stephen’s family: “Our beloved husband and father, Stephen R. Covey, passed away peacefully in the Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center at 2:15 this morning, due to the residual effects of a bike accident he suffered this past April. He was in his 80th year. In his final hours, he was surrounded by his loving wife and each one of his children and their spouses, just as he always wanted. We extend our heartfelt gratitude for all of the love and prayers that have been showered upon Stephen and our family from all around the globe over the past several months. All our love, The Stephen R. Covey Family”
