HOUSTON (CBS Houston) As the country continues to mourn the unexpected death of radio and television host David “Kidd” Kraddick, the Jefferson Parish Coroner’s Officer stated on Monday that the cause of his sudden death was cardiac-related.

The popular Dallas-based radio host died in Louisiana Saturday while hosting his Kidd’s Kids charity golf tournament. The organization was one that raised thousands of dollars for children with chronic and terminal illnesses.

Kraddick, who was 53 was preparing to take the first swing at the golf tournament. He went to the driving range to practice, but became ill. He was rushed to a nearby hospital but became ill. Doctors were not able to save his life.

Known as a philologist and someone who took the plight of terminally ill children to heart, Kraddick’s morning show was syndicated in over 70 cities all over the country.

Kraddick’s colleagues in Dallas expressed grief, sadness and astonishment over his death: “All of us with YEA Networks and the Kidd Kraddick in the Morning crew are heartbroken over the loss of our dear friend and leader. Kidd devoted his life to making people smile every morning, and for 21 years, his foundation has been dedicated to bringing joy to thousands of chronically and terminally ill children,” as said in a statement from his colleagues.
