“89 years old and he went just like that, from nothing.”

From Philly.com:

Womack’s death comes as something of a surprise. Though he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease two years ago and overcame addiction and multiple health issues, including prostate and colon cancer, recently, he seemed in good health and spirits when he performed earlier this month at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival.
So, aside from the effects of a lifelong addiction to drugs, multiple health issues, Alzheimer’s, prostate cancer and colon cancer, he mysteriously dropped dead, just like that.

3. Betcha the dear departed was surprised. The reporter awaits a response to his email.
