He got eaten.

In Home Is The Hunter, which is set shortly after TMP, Ensign Garrovick gets killed - and then he's a major character in In The Name Of Honor, set after TFF.

Also, T'Pau's been resurrected a couple of times, hasn't she? Because I seem to recall her presiding over Spock and Saavik's wedding in Vulcan's Heart...
T'Pau was alsoin the secong Excalibur book in New Frontier.

The offspring of Janeway and Paris I killed was named Neelix. Close enough?

Re: Canon characters killed in the books SPOILERS!!

"Home is the Hunter" is a post-TMP novel that begins with the death of security chief Garrovick, and Kirk blaming himself for the man's demise. Many years later, along came "In the Name of Honor", set post-ST V, IIRC, and Garrovick has been a prisoner-of-war for many years. (As DGCatAniSiri has already pointed out.)

One of DC Comics' first post-ST II comics killed off Kang (or was it Koloth?). He was also bumpy headed, with no explanation. I think, at the time, it was the first TOS tie-in death of a canonical character. Then, many issues later, he was back, again with no explanation.

And in the similarly titled DC graphic novel Debt of Honor, Garrovick is also shown to be alive in the TOS movie era.

One of DC Comics' first post-ST II comics killed off Kang (or was it Koloth?). He was also bumpy headed, with no explanation. I think, at the time, it was the first TOS tie-in death of a canonical character. Then, many issues later, he was back, again with no explanation.
It was Koloth, and he apparently died in issue 2.

And the "explanation" favored by Roddenberry was that Klingons had always had bumpy heads and TOS simply hadn't depicted them accurately.

And if I'm not mistaken, since Ann Crispin also killed her in Sarek, that makes Amanda one of the few (only?) characters to die twice in the novels.
Of course, doesn't McCoy die twice in Provenance of Shadows alone? For that matter, who knows who dies how many times in Q-Squared.

You are, of course, all murderous thugs!

Query: Of the above list of deaths, how many are "book canon", rather than from standalone (and out-of-ongoing-book-continuity) stories? {ProfJonathan}

No--Neelix has the "Jar Jar Mojo," which protects him. {ProfJonathan}

The only ones that aren't are McCoy -- who's still wandering around being a cranky old bastard in A Singular Destiny -- and T'Pau -- who was seen in New Frontier a good 80 years after she died in Spock's World (and, come to think of it, in Vulcan's Heart some years after the Duane-written death).
