He even came close to dying twice in
2005. First, a twelve day bout with
pneumonia, then congestive heart
failure. He actually lost
consciousness for several minutes after
going into respiratory arrest.

Later that year doctors did find a
70-percent blockage in an artery and
stents were put in to open it up.

After his brush with death, Falwell
did make several lifestyle changes. He
cut his work schedule in half, began
eating more healthy, and walking more.

But despite his efforts, his doctors
believe he passed away today from
sudden cardiac death.
