The religious leader and media mogul died Sept. 2, reportedly from complications of pneumonia.

Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon, the man responsible for founding the Unification Church and the Washington Times, died Sept. 2 in South Korea at the age of 92. He was surrounded by family members, friends and followers, according to a report from the Times, as his health has been in decline for quite some time.

Members of the church had reportedly been conducting prayer vigils and participating in fasts, all with the goal of improving their leaders’ health.

Thomas P. McDevitt, president of the Washington Times, released the following statement:

“Words cannot convey my heart at this time. … Rev. Sun Myung Moon has long loved America, and he believed in the need for a powerful free press to convey accurate information and moral values to people in a free world. The Washington Times stands as a tangible expression of those two loves.”

The reverend’s youngest son, Hyung Jin Moon, is the appointed successor of the church. He currently serves as its international president.
