Famed director of classic '80s films John Hughes has passed away after suffering a heart attack in New York City.

TMZ reports that "Hughes suffered the heart attack while taking a morning walk during a trip to NYC to visit family."

Hughes wrote some of the most well-known films about high school ever made, such as The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and Sixteen Candles, to name just a few. He directed many of his films, as well.

The director has long been recognized as the bedrock of '80s movies when it comes to teens, high school, and dramatic comedies about the two subjects. He also wrote the Christmas blockbuster Home Alone and many other comedic scripts, most recently contributing to the story for Drillbit Taylor.

Anyone who grew up in the '70s or '80s holds at least a few of his films dear to their hearts, and he will be missed fondly by movie lovers everywhere.

Rest in peace, John.
