Summary:The much-loved Pope John the 23rd died on June 3 1963. This fatherly figure had been pontiff for little over four years, during which time he had become known as 'the Pope of the people' because of his simple tastes and his extraordinary rapport with the crowd who flocked to see him. He had been taken ill suddenly, four days before his death.
