I am sorry about your friend. 41 is very young, and it is very sad for his family.
Younger people who die of heart attacks usually have it happen because one of the arteries which supply blood to the heart muscle suddenly clogs off, and no oxygen can get to the muscle beyond the clot. In older people the clogging builds up over time and the heart actually has time to build up new blood paths ways around the clog so the muscle still gets some blood and oxygen.
