The author of the popular animated series "Sponge Bob Square Pants" Stephen Hillenberg died in the United States at the age of 57 years. Reporting it BBC.

Hillenberg was diagnosed with motor neuron disease or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) in March last year. It is reported that this was the cause of death for the artist.

"We are very upset about Steve Hillenberg's death," said the Nickelodeon film company in a statement. "He was a close friend and long-term creative partner for all of us in Nickelodeon. With us as a reminder of the value of optimism, friendship and imagination's unlimited power."

Stephen Hillenberg was born on August 21, 1961 in Fort Silla, Oklahoma. In 1984 he graduated from Humboldt University in California and went to work as a marine biology teacher at the Marine Institute, now called the Ocean Institute at Dana Point. Talents of storyteller and artist and love of marine animals inspired Hillenberg to illustrate lectures with own stories and drawings, where future world-famous heroes performed – Sponge Bob and his friends.
