From chessbase.com

04.02.2005 He was one of the most popular satirists of all time, with over 50 books selling 43 million copies in 37 different languages. He was also a chess enthusiast who survived the Holocaust by playing games against a guard. He even designed his own chess computer. Ephraim Kishon died on January 29, 2005, aged 80. “

The chess computer model Fidelity Kishon was named after him.

No matter how old someone is, how sick one may be, death is always a tragic event in my opinion.
