CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va (WVIR) -

Dave Simpson, the longtime chef and owner of C&O restaurant in Charlottesville, died Tuesday morning after being hospitalized following a heart attack, according to friends.

Simpson spent more than 30 years as the man behind the popular restaurant, which opened for business in 1976. In 2013, he sold the restaurant to Dean Maupin, who described Simpson recently to an area newspaper as "entirely original."

There is no word on a memorial service just yet.
