Dear friend, welcome to HCM!
The ECHO is normal for his age and shows some thickening of the left ventricle (heart chamber) that occurs with long standing blood pressure and old age.
There are minor changes due to age and nothing worrisome.
Just make sure his BP remains manageable for his age and well controlled if high.

Take care and please keep me informed of your progress.
Good Luck!
I hope to have answered your query satisfactorily.
Thank you!
