The one good thing you can say about this is that he was doing the things he enjoyed until the last. Could it be he was working too hard at home? He seemed like an awfully ambitious guy, and that can be taxing on a person. My sister met him once in Chicago when he was racing horses with his daughter, and he autographed a ticket stub for my niece. She got a real thrill out of it! I hope he's in a better place, eternally young again, and there are lots of horses there!
