It seems that the cold and high blood pressure were to blame for the death of a 66-year-old Van Buren Township man.

Family members say Ron Leppen helped push his daughter’s car out of the snow Tuesday night, then came into the house and collapsed.

Autopsy results shows Leppen, who suffered from hypertension,  died of heart attack triggered by the cold.

Leppen is survived by a wife, four children, and 10 grandchildren.

A viewing will be held  for Leppen from 1 to 9 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Howe Peterson in Taylor. The funeral will be held Monday at 11 a.m. at the same location.
