Sad news indeed. When I was in my early 20s I would have committed unspeakable acts to make my voice sound like his. No Satanic bargain was offered. He had a tremendous sense of dynamics and knew when to dial it back. Singer in the true sense of the word, lots more than just a voice. Many people never knew where Mr. T got "I pity the fool."
