Just guessing here:

Male. 51 years old. High-stress job. Likely required to spend long hours confined to a an airplane passenger seat traveling for his work.

Dies unexpectedly (no known medical issues, such as pre-existing illness).

Death will likely be the result of heart failure: cardiac arrest or massive thrombosis (possibly caused by Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)).

He sounds like a prime candidate for either condition.

Agree.... I had a rough ride at a point not so long ago. Spend too much time sitting down, no exercise. I was under 40.... it litterally took only 1 month from my change in lifestyle till I was rushed by my GP to the hospital because I had pain in my inner thigh and a long red line running up from my calf.
Scared the # out of me. And Im not per say obese... I even did leg strength at the time... squats and leg presses etc.

Some of us just have # genes. My dad died from cardio at 59 :/

'Suddenly' = journalistic talk for suicide (many times more than not).

Condolences to his wife and 3 kids.

From what I read it sounds like the world will be a smaller darker place without this incredible humanitarian.

All that stress? Working with such 'doom'? I don't think suicide can be ruled out - especially when no one is talking about how he died.
