They did do a in memoriam at the end of one of the episodes shortly after he died.
I don't see a problem with killing the character off regardless of whether he's alive in the books. It's not like there is a caveat in the contract that says they must follow the books. (Although I wish that was part of many tv/movie contracts)
Baby, you and me were never meant to be, just maybe think of me once in a while...
