So he was 74, not too old, but perhaps it is also a gift to be able to do all the things You love to do until the end comes.
I met Hans Gmoser some years ago, and although he was a famous man and had earned a lot of money he never showed it and was a very modest and friendly person.

That is true. Everybody who ever met him states that he had a wonderful personality and acted very friendly with everyone.
Here is the story in German from an Austrian source.
