That's very sad he had to go much too early...
Here's a 12-part interview about Takashi Amano, published in a Hong Kong newspaper, shared and translated on Creative Aquascape Union's Facebook page:
Here's a short snippet, edited for clarity:
“Going to consult those professors and medical specialists about how to dissolve CO2 into water….the answer was “to force the CO2 to dissolve into the water would destroy the eco environment, stop dreaming!” That cold reaction, I can’t remember how many times. Moreover, how to dissolve CO2 into water was still not known, it was really upsetting!!”
Amano said, “During that time, I always went to the bar to have fun with friends, often drinking Highball (whiskey with soda water). One day, I saw the can of soda water printed the ingredients as water and CO2. An idea sparkled, can it put into the planted tank? Then I brought all remaining six cans of soda water and rushed home.”
Amano continued to express that “I put all the soda water into the planted tank and after a while; those weakened plant leaves gradually appeared to bubble. I was so happy and almost tearing. This photosynthesis had been troubling me for a lot of time. My childhood memory of Niigata Maki “鎧潟”, the aquatic-plant waving and the flashing bubbles recalled in my mind again.”
“After that day, I searched all bars nearby and bought all of their soda water and then poured it in my planted tank. It was really a miracle, plants significantly improved and grew” Amano excitedly said.
I remember reading this in Nature Aquarium Complete Works...it's a great story.

It's still comforting that he passed with an old age. He went out the easy way.
3 years ago, a very legendary meteorologist and storm chaser died as he was hit by a massive tornado. Talk about going out the hard way.
