As of this writing, the cause of death has not been made public.

Very sad.

Update: The Houston Chronicle reports that Mr. Garner died early Monday morning at a Houston hospital, having suffered horribly from meningitis for months.

“Over the last few months, he lost the use of his legs from meningitis,” [according to Mark Roy, a spokesman for Lambda Legal.]
