His last years after his cancer diagnosis were spent using the time he had left to do the greatest good that he could. He offered his own medical condition to doctors to test new treatments, knowing it wouldn't improve his chances. He did it for the next generation. He continued to be outspoken against the atrocities of organized religions and refused to allow any zealots to make the mistake of claiming he might have a "deathbed conversion." He was a role model for humanism and for furthering the scope of science and rational thought to the very end. He will be truly missed.
