President Trump pays tribute to Sean Connery as actor's widow reveals he had dementia: 'It was no life for him'

James Bond actor Sean Connery died at age 90 on October 31. His widow, Micheline Roquebrune revealed that Connery suffered from dementia. 

Roquebrune stated, It was no life for him. . . He was not able to express himself latterly." Roquebrune also stated that Connery died peacefully in his sleep and that's the way he wanted to go. 

Sean Connery's son Jason stated, 

Connery"We are all working at understanding this huge event as it only happened so recently, even though my dad has been unwell for some time,” the younger Connery shared upon news of his father’s death in his sleep while at home in Nassau. "A sad day for all who knew and loved my dad and a sad loss for all people around the world who enjoyed the wonderful gift he had as an actor."

President Donal Trump also paid his respects referring to Connery as a "great actor and an even greater man." Donald Trump also gave Connery credit for helping the President get "the green light" for a development project in Scotland. Although, this claim was refuted as Mirror reported that Connery did support the golf course project, his endorsement was not what got it approved. 

Sean Connery was a great actor and from what it sounds like, a role model man as well.
