New Jersey Governor Chris Christie described the actor's sudden death as a shock.

I would point out Gandolfini was obese, but no where near the scale Christie is obese.....

The thing about heart attacks like that is that they can be practically instant-- you're up and about one moment, then dead as a doornail the next. Shemp Howard, one of the Three Stooges, died in the middle of a joke. Comedian Dick Shawn died on stage. I suspect that is what happened to Mr. Gandolfini.
