    At least he got to see the great tribute and was aware of how great people thought he was. RIP.

    The father of one of my first serious boyfriends retired on a Friday and didn't wake up anymore in the morning of the first Sunday after that...... He and his wife had planned to travel all around the world. Life can be really cruel. R.I.P.

    I have heard that happens quite often with people as soon as they retire, they drop dead. It's like working was what kept them going.

    Yeah, I worked with a guy at Ford that had this same thing happen - and he was only in his 60's.

    True, but he strikes me as someone who loved his work enough to not really need retirement.

    A couple of years ago, a lady who had worked in the billing department of the clinic where I work for over 30 years dropped dead of a heart attack at home 1 week before she was to retire...

    I am sorry he has passed, but let's be realistic. He chose to wait until 84 to retire, so the expectations of living much longer were not too realistic. He had a long happy life, and chose to keep working well past the normal age of retirement.
