By my reckoning, he'd be about 74 by now, which I think is a fairly respectable age to reach, so I'd guess he probably went by old age, or some complication related to living that long.
Though I didn't know his name, it would seem I'm rather familiar with a lot of the projects he's been involved with, so its sad to see that he's gone, but with a legacy like that, I'm certain he won't be forgotten completely!
