Roger Ailes, the man who worked so hard to build Fox News into an empire, has died at the age of 77-years-old, just ten months after his departure from Fox News. No information on the cause of his death has been reported at this time.

His wife, Elizabeth Ailes, posted the following message:

“I am profoundly sad and heartbroken to report that my husband, Roger Ailes, passed away this morning. Roger was a loving husband to me, to his son Zachary, and a loyal friend to many. He was also a patriot, profoundly grateful to live in a country that gave him so much opportunity to work hard, to rise—and to give back. During a career that stretched over more than five decades, his work in entertainment, in politics, and in news affected the lives of many millions. And so even as we mourn his death, we celebrate his life.”

Many people took to twitter, including some of the top Fox News figured, to express their condolences and to mourn the death of their longtime friend.

Here are some of their tweets:
