Extracted this from a recent Rolling Stone article....

Becker had also been battling health issues for well over a decade, yet another sign of his low-key, private nature, and few of his friends knew how severe his situation was until recently. Only this summer, when he dropped out of Steely Dan's shows at the Classic West and East festivals in Los Angeles and New York, did the severity of his lingering health issues hit many who knew him, and many were shocked when news of his death was first announced on his website. "I understand Walter was ill," says Chevy Chase, who met Fagen and Becker during their Bard College days and remained in touch, "but I had no idea how sick." Even his death remains a mystery; at press time, no cause was announced, but sources close to the Dan camp say he struggled with hepatitis C and may have succumbed to cancer.

RE: RIP Walter Becker
Sorry I don't agree with any of the above grabbed off the internet shite.
Or the posters thoughts on Walter carrying a Hep virus around for years without knowing.
When a band like Steely Dan goes on a world tour all members of that band have to under go heavy duty health medicals checks / tests for insurance purposes .
Walter would have known if he have Hep C.

Symptoms of hepatitis C

Many people with hepatitis C don't have any symptoms and are unaware they have the infection. They may develop symptoms later on as their liver becomes increasingly damaged.
