Hi

Thanks for posting your query.

Very sorry to know about the demise of your husband.

Most likely he would have had a massive heart attack which sometimes present with shoulder pain or arm pain instead of chest pain.

The other possibility is stroke and rupture of aorta ( large blood vessels ).

Any further information needed feel free to contact.

Regards.
