    Sad news for sure, but a long life lived.

    A little known fact I learned in my First Aid refresher. The maneuver is no longer referred to as the Heimlich Maneuver, but it is simply called to the Abdominal Thrust. Seems that some in his family had an issue with their name being used for it, and with some of the other unorthodox methods Heimlich came up with so they sued to get it removed from this procedure.
