They're not saying for sure, but what makes the most sense is that he was getting old and his body was going out. He had gotten a lot of surgery done to his legs and he was trouble getting out at all anymore. And since he was a real hands-on guy, he probably didn't want to die slowly for the next ten years.

There's no earthly way of knowing which direction we are going. There's no knowing where we're rowing or which way the river's flowing. Is it raining? Is it snowing? Is a hurricane a-blowing? Not a speck of light is showing, so the danger must be growing. Are the fires of hell a-glowing? Is the grisly reaper mowing? Yes, the danger must be growing 'cause the rowers keep on rowing, and they're certainly not showing any signs that they are slowing. AAAGGHHH!!!
