Did any US president die naturally of old age while being president. Not diseases, nor violence, Just Old Age. If so, who?

No .. no US President has died in office from "old age". They've died in office from assassination or from the effects of an illness or a wound of some sort, but not from "old age".

"... eight presidents have died in office: four were assassinated and four died of natural causes"
[*] William Henry Harrison became ill with a cold after being caught in a torrential downpour without cover.
[*] July 4, 1850, Zachary Taylor he became severely ill with an unknown digestive ailment.
[*] Warren G. Harding; died from a sudden heart attack
[*] March 29, 1945, Franklin D. Roosevelt The president's attending cardiologist, Dr. Howard Bruenn, diagnosed a massive cerebral hemorrhage (stroke).
No president died in his sleep.

Warren Harding died at 56-years-old, of a heart attack. I don't know what you mean as old.
Franklin Roosevelt at 63 of a stroke. Those were the oldest death by natural causes.

Old age alone doesn't kill you. It's affects does.
