    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.
