He died peacefully at home as he had wanted, with his family singing hyms around him.

"Blessed is everyone that feareth the LORD; that walketh in his ways. For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands; happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee. Thy wife shalt be as a fruitful vine...thy children like olive plants round about thy table. Behold, that thus shall the man be blessed that feareth the LORD. (Psalm 128:1-4)
