Tv writer David Tynan has died aged 62 following a battle with pancreatic cancer.
Tynan passed away on 11 November (13) at his home in Vancouver, Canada, according to Variety.com.
A statement from his family reads, "David survived longer than 97 per cent of others diagnosed with his particular form of cancer, a testament to how much he loved life... David showed exceptional bravery, perseverance and good humour throughout his illness, and he shall be sorely missed."
Tynan's writing credits include Tv spin-offs based on Highlander and Flash Gordon, as well as Poltergeist: The Legacy.
He was a member of the Writers Guild of America, West and the Writers Guild of Canada, and in 1996, he was awarded the organisation's first Leo Award for Best Screenwriter in a Dramatic Tv Series for Highlander: The Series.
