Jimmy Breslin was one of the biggest, brashest and perhaps the best columnist in New York City. Jimmy Breslin, the iconic Pulitzer Prize-winning New York newspaper columnist who covered the funeral of United States President John F. Kennedy from his grave digger’s perspective, dies on Sunday, 19th March 2017. He was 88 years old.

Jimmy’s death was confirmed by his physician, William Cole. Jimmy died at his home in Manhattan and primary reason being complications from pneumonia. His longtime employer reported Jimmy Breslin's death and as per Cole,

“He was a force of nature. There’s a funny story to go with that. Apparently somewhere along the way he lied. He wanted to be the youngest person at a certain paper. Usually, it’s the other way around.”

Jimmy was released just before four days following a one-night hospital stay due to pneumonia. One night earlier on Saturday, Jimmy shared dinner with his second wife who is ex-City Council member Ronnie Eldridge.

His stepdaughter, Emily Eldridge said:

"It's the end of an era. He was a force of nature. He was complicated, but he had a great life and a lot of fun."

Jimmy Breslin was working for the New York's tabloid Daily News back when he won a Pulitzer in 1986.

"As a columnist, he found human angles that went straight to the heart of the story," the Pulitzer committee then said in 1986.

Heartfelt Condolence swarmed through Twitter after the news the media all around the globe.

Along with journalism, Jimmy also authored several books. Jimmy chronicled the funny, lovable as well as genuinely awful New York Mets of 1962 in his book ‘Can't Anybody Here Play this Game?’ However Jimmy’s first novel, ‘The Gang That Couldn’t Shoot Straight’, was a humor-filled story of a Brooklyn mob published in 1969 that became a major motion picture later which helped thrust Robert De Niro into stardom.
