An ailing custom motorcycle shop owner was found dead in his business in Panama City, Fla., and police say he appears to have died of natural causes.

Police and fire personnel discovered the body of Dave Stone in the back of the shop where he worked and lived after employees were unable to get into the store on Feb. 24, according to the News Herald.

An employee called 911 when Stone failed to open his store, Finish Line Custom Cycles.

Friend Danny Starr had brought his daughter’s motorcycle to the shop Friday to have a gas line repaired. He told the newspaper Stone had been ill for several years.
