What the ...?? I met him this september! 54 years old, it's so young. I'm worried about the future of the school now :/

I'm very sad to hear that news

Heart attacks can bring down the mightiest of men, both in mind and body.
My own grandfather (not a MA-expert, but still) died from a heart attack at the age of 50.

My sincerest condolenses.
