The conservative blogger and journalist passed away suddenly Thursday morning, sending shockwaves through both the media and political worlds. According to Breitbart's website Big Journalism, he died of natural causes at age 43.

"Andrew lived boldly, so that we more timid souls would dare to live freely and fully, and fight for the fragile liberty he showed us how to love," his site wrote Thursday.
