Steve Jobs, who as I'm sure you all know is the co founder and CEO of Apple passed away last Wednesday while at his home in Palo Alto, which is in California. He died from respiratory arrest which was brought on by a pancreatic tumor he had. This is the official cause of death as on his death certificate.
Steve suffered with some health problems but said very little about his struggles with cancer and his operation in the year 2004. He stepped down as Apples CEO in August and the position was taken by Tim Cook, saying he could no longer fulfill his duties as chief executive.
RIP Steve Jobs
