Question shingles

A good friend passed away 8-13-2011. He had shingles for 2 years, and developed complications, and after some surgery to clear some blockage, he went down hill very quickly. Has anyone heard of shingles causing death in any form? My wife had them several years ago, and recoverd within a couple of months. My friend was 75 at the time of his passing.
Any info would be appreciated!!

Re: shingles

I think maybe he couldn't fight infection. I never heard anyone dying from it. But that is mt guess. May he rest in peace.
