I just thought the Eskimos should know the truth...
The article that was written is wrong.
The article says that he was fine and that he went out to lunch with Brian Dickinson that afternoon.
Actually, he had already had 2 heart attacks, so he wasn't "fine," and he had been in the hospital. Mr Dickinson was visiting with him, and he went out to lunch with his wife and my grandmother, Lore. 30 minutes after they left, he died of heart failure.
It was about 8 days before his 77th birthday.

And yes, I do know this is all true, because he was my grandfather.
