LBBB can be a mild disease because of no reasons many times. In very few people it is because of some underlying pathology.
Coronary artery disease also can cause LBBB. It is better to rule out coronary ischemia by doing TMT/ stress echo.
If required doctor may suggest for an angiogram also.
Considering his age and hypertension it is better to investigate further.
Good luck.
