John Hughes died of a heart attack on Thursday, his spokeswoman confirmed to the Los Angeles Times. The director was 59.

Hughes, who directed the beloved ’80s films The Breakfast Club and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, was visiting family in Manhattan when he had a heart attack during a morning walk, the Associated Press reports.

The writer-director, who lived in the Chicago area and set many of his films there, is credited with making Molly Ringwald, who appeared in his 1984 movie Sixteen Candles, a star.

The last film he directed was 1991’s Curly Sue. In recent years, the somewhat reclusive Hughes contributed as a writer to movies including 2002’s Maid in Manhattan
