That is a symptom of an Ischemic Stroke in his left hemisphere (and not many things cause paralysis or loss of feeling on one half of the body), which, if the cause of death was a myocardial infarction, would mean he was throwing clots all over the place.
Note: I am not that kind of doctor, and wont be any kind for another 10-12 months, but I analyze bad things in order to cope.
Not to clog up the thread with idle speculation, but yeah, hemisplagia would point to an ischemic CVA but not limited to that since we don't know if it really was hemisplagia, could be anything. A profound sense of weakness is not uncommon in myocardio infarction too. Someone mentioned the spider bite earlier, you're the critter dude, would a spider bite screw with coagulation in blood? That might lend to the ischemic CVA thing. Hell, for all we know, he went into ketoacidosis from his diabetes. No way to tell.
Again, my sympathies to the family.
