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.
They shake your hand and they smile and they buy you a drink
They say we'll be your friends we'll stick with you till the end
But everybody's only looking out for themselves
And you say who can you trust I'll tell you nobody
