I can't say for sure one way or the other, but you don't say how complete
this list is.

It's not complete at all.

Plus there are only 5 from 1911 to 2006 and they all died before age 60.

There are others who died after 70, but I would consider that 'old age' [no offense intended to anyone] rather than heart problems.
These were just some names of those younger than 60 that I found in a five minute search. In the article I referred to from a few years back, there were a lot more names, but I don't remember where to find it, so I couldn't.

Seems like there's something else at work here, something inherited perhaps.

Possibly. But do you think that more men between 40 and 60 who die from heart attacks do so because of hereditary heart problems rather than a propensity for indulging in behaviour that may contribute to the likelihood of having a grabber?
