Not that I ever delight in the death of anyone, but at least you won't have to work in an environment where you feel uncomfortable anymore. Chin up, OP, no way you could have known!
Sometimes you'll find that the people who are the most anti-gay turn out to be that way because they themselves are gay. It's a coping mechanism. They figure it'll either hide their gayness, or that they can't be gay if they hate gay people. I'm NOT SAYING that ALL anti-gay people are gay themselves, nor am I SAYING that most are, just SOMETIMES that's what happens. It may not even be the case now, but I just wanted to throw my two cents in. :)
I want to know how a racist, sexist, and lazy person manage to hold down a job. Still though, this isn't your fault, your request was reasonable, and you didn't know that he died. You were just working with the information you had, it's not like you were purposefully trying to be insensitive.
