Kidd Kraddick and daughter Caroline (
Kidd Kraddick, a well known radio personality, passed away at the age of 53 this weekend after falling ill at his charity golf tournament. Now, details about his sudden death are emerging.

Apparently he had an enlarged heart due to cardiac disease and three coronary arteries were 40 to 80 percent blocked. This isn't a final cause of death, since toxicology reports aren't back, but are a good indication of what happened. It's likely Kraddick had also developed and irregular heartbeat.

His daughter, Caroline, wrote on Twitter: "I will never wrap my brain around my fathers passing. Please keep me and my family in your prayers and ask The Lord to watch over my daddy."

She then said her publicist would be running her Twitter account from here on out. "Due to the high volume of traffic this page has received, this page will be operated by my publicist. Posts by Caroline will be signed -CC." she wrote.

When news first broke of Kraddick's detah, a note was posted on his Twitter page:
The head golf professional at the course where Kraddick passed told the AP: “He came out and he borrowed my golf clubs and went out to the driving range. It’s kind of a freaky situation. He came out. He practiced a little bit. He hit the ball at the first tee and wasn’t feeling good and after that I didn’t see him. ... I’m still trying to figure it out. I really don’t know what happened. Everyone keeps texting me asking, ‘What’s going on?’ I really don’t know."
