He succumbed to atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, according to the Maryland Department of Health, which is typically a buildup of fats, cholesterol and other substances in arteries which restricts blood flow – and can cause heart attacks and strokes.

Ruiz’s sudden death was listed as “natural” and no foul play was suspected, according to TMZ.

The chef – who was known as “The Cuban” – was best known for his roles on foodie shows with pal and celebrity restaurateur Guy Fieri.

Carl went on to star on Guy’s Grocery Games and Guy’s Ranch Kitchen and Guy expressed his grief at losing his pal.

“Today I say goodbye to one of the greatest friends and chefs I ever knew,” he wrote on Twitter on Sept 28th.

“He lived life to the fullest, and loved it all. We will miss you Carl,” he added.

The Cuban-American previously owned Marie’s Italian Specialities in Chatham Township, New Jersey, with his ex-wife, Marie Riccio, and was well-known for his knowledge of Spanish food.

“I’m heartbroken that my friend chef Carl Ruiz is gone,” Fieri wrote in a heartfelt tribute, when the news first broke.

“I have no words to describe what a great friend he was to me and my family. His ability to make me laugh and smile under any circumstances was only outshined by his talent as a chef.”

Ruiz opened La Cubana in Manhattan’s Meat Packing district in June, specializing in authentic cuisine from the island nation of his roots.
