It appears that he might have massive internal hemorrhage leading to his death.
He might be having high blood pressure and sudden precipitation of high blood pressure might have given this bad incidence.
Take care.

Cardiologist Dr. Sukhvinder Singh's  Response
Respected sir/ madam
It was really sad to hear about your grandfather.
The information you have provided is too little to infer anything conclusively.
However common causes for such a devastating vomiting of blood which takes away the life of patient can be rupture of varicose veins (related to liver failure), sudden rupture of a gastric ulcer, rupture of lower part of food pipe by repeated vomiting, bleed from a cancer of stomach, food pipe or intestine or rarely rupture of large blood vessel (aortic aneurysm) into food pipe (esophagus).
If you can provide more details, I will discuss further.
