TORONTO — Influential music supervisor David Hayman, whose credits include TV’s Schitt’s Creek, Letterkenny and Ginny & Georgia, and last year's Robbie Robertson/The Band documentary Once Were Brothers, died May 19 at age 42. The cause of death was heart failure, according to members of Hayman's family and several friends in the industry.

His co-workers released a collective statement Wednesday on Facebook, writing, "Yesterday, we said goodbye to our fearless leader Doc David Hayman.When he created the Supergroup, he created a family based on passion, curiosity, authenticity and a pinch of crazy. An incredible talent with an even bigger heart, David leaves behind not only an impressive legacy of work, but also leaves his mark on the people of the film and music industry. Thank you all for your continued support. Follow your passions, keep it authentic and please be kind to one another."
