Died three days before his 75th birthday in a hospital after a fall at home in which he broke his right leg. He may have died from the amount of anesthetic because of his height which may have affected his enlarged heart.
I am actually 7'1-1/2" tall. I say 7'2" because it's easier. Unlike some tall skinny guys, I am really "big", weighing around 350 pounds.
