He passed away unexpectedly at the age of 52 from a heart attack.
As difficult as it is for me, I can only imagine how difficult it has been for his team in Germany. They all worked closely on the website project.

He really must have been! I'm sure they are carrying on his work though. He was young, seems to me.
