    maybe he had nothing to look forward to after retirement so figured he wanted to move on. :dunno:

    but i did read the other day there were "complications" from the procedure. i guess at 92, nothing is simple.

    He had a good long and productive life. Just thought he might get a little more retirement time in.

    I liked the guy.
