    Terrible news.

    Was he a big smoker?

  4. Geraldo says:

    @Jarren – yes he was an unashamedly heavy smoker – at least 20 a day – and only quit after heart bypass surgery in the 1990s.

      Good god. I was a 20-a-day man until a year ago (I’m now 36).

      Horrible to think about what we go through to even consider quitting.
