Fifty-four-year-old Myles Henry, co-owner of the Maine Diner, died Friday, Dec. 3, in Marco Island, Fla., after apparently having passed out and hit his head in a restaurant bathroom, according to multiple sources.
While Henry's official cause of death is yet to be determined by the District 20 Medical Examiner's Office in Florida, Henry's wife, Trisha Henry, said the longtime local business owner was born with two heart deformities — a bicuspid aortic valve and Wolf Parkinson White syndrome — which she said could have led to a heart attack.
Henry and his brother, Dick Henry, had purchased what is now the Maine Diner off Route 1 in 1983, and the establishment has been thriving ever since.
Guy Fieri, with the Diners, Drive-ins and Dives camera crew, visited the Maine Diner on Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010. The episode, Old Time Attitude, premiered on 8/9/10.
