Brief Answer:
No, one will not die from gas but from heart attack

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Gas per se will not cause one to die but it can sometimes cause anginal pain by reflex mechanism.
Many a times heart attack causes symptoms similar to gas and heart burn, associated with diaphoresis or sweating, uneasiness. So in these situations one may neglect the symptoms and consider it to be gas problem leading to complications and death. So in short, heart attack and gas problem have similar symptoms and heart attack is one which causes death, not gas problem. So if one is having above symptoms and if risk factors for heart disease are also present like elder age, obesity, smoking, family history, high bp etc should get their ecg done to rule out heart issues.
Gas problem occurs due to gastritis which in turn occurs due to stress, Incomplete sleep, spicy, oily foods, with stomach infection, smoking, alcohol etc.
Hope this helps you and get back if you have any doubts.

Brief Answer:
No, only diet will not cause this

Detailed Answer:
Only poor diet will not lead to this. Likely cause for his death was heart attack. Probable cause for his heart attack was blood abnormalities. Some patients may have genetic problems which leads to high cholesterol levels or thick blood which can cause heart attack. Also, is there any family history of heart problem on your husband side which can also contribute. Also, smoking is important cause of heart attack in young patients if he used to smoke.
