I don't know what kind of lifestyle he had.
Perhaps it's simply a matter of bad luck. But a heart attack at 46 could also be the consequence of having used lots of drugs in his life.

46 is not extremely young but it's not old either. I mean, it's young for a heart attack (though it can happen at any age).

My condolences to his family and friends.
