The statement also outlined that Cohen died on November 7, three days before his passing was made public.
Earlier this week Cohen’s son, Adam, said his father’s funeral had taken place in his home city of Montreal.
Before Cohen passed away, he recently addressed his declining health and mortality. I am ready to die,” he said. “I hope it’s not too uncomfortable.”
Cohen, who never married, is survived by his daughter, Lorca, his son, Adam and his three grandchildren, Cassius, Viva and Lyon.
