Gone Too Soon: Angus Hawley Dead at Age 46
Australian businessman and father of four Angus Hawley has passed away in New York after suffering a heart attack. He was 46. Angus, who was well-known in Australia thanks to his 11-year marriage to Antonia Kidman, was in America for a business conference — he was reportedly enjoying dinner with a friend when he suffered a cardiac arrest and died on the way to hospital. On Sunday Angus' brother Phillip released a statement on behalf of his devastated family.
"We confirm that Angus Hawley has suddenly and very unexpectedly died of a suspected heart attack whilst in New York attending a conference. There are no further details at this time as it only occurred last night, our time. The family request the media please respect their privacy at this very sad time."
His death will come as a shocking blow: Angus was known for maintaining his health and fitness, and seemed to be in perfect health right up until his death. He leaves behind his wife, Prue Fisher, who was supposed to be joining him in New York in a couple of days, as well as four children with his ex-wife Antonia Kidman. Angus was extremely close to his children Lucia, Hamish, James and Sybella, and was still on good terms with Antonia and her family.
This news comes just seven months after Kidman family patriarch Dr. Antony Kidman passed away under similar circumstances: he died of a heart attack while eating breakfast in Singapore, where he was visiting Antonia.
