Secret Santa Dies

A sad day. If you've heard of his story it's a real heart warmer.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Larry Stewart, who was known for years as Secret Santa because of his habit of roaming the streets in December anonymously handing money to people he thought could use a lift, died Friday. He was 58.

Jackson County Sheriff Tom Phillips, a longtime friend, said Stewart died around 2 p.m. Friday. The cause of death was complications from esophageal cancer, Phillips said.

Stewart gained international attention in November when, after 26 years of his anonymous streetside giving, which totaled about $1.3 million, he revealed himself as Secret Santa.
