and the fact that AIDS was involved was kept quite for about 20 yrs. I recall wondering why his family thought that bit would harm his memory and reputation. It certainly didn't in my case: just sadness that he'd been in more distress in his final years.

ISTR that Isaac Asimov also died of AIDS thanks to a bad transfusion when
they operated on him sometime in the early 80s.

That’s how Arthur Ashe died. He was the same age as his father was when
each of them had a massive heart attack. His father died of the heart
attack, he died of transfusion induced AIDS. Being a world class
athlete wasn’t enough to overcome his genetic inheritance. I had my heart
attack the same age as my father had his, but I’ve out-lived his death-age
by 3 years now.
