Death of a Gourami

Hey... poor Mr. Roper... he's gone to the other side and joined Mrs. Roper... I have heard that widowers often go into the light not to long after (Mrs. Roper died at christmas)... BUT... I am wondering if running the higher temp (86f) killed the poor guy? I turned up the tank about 5 days ago... to kill off ick on the clowns... (which seemed to work)... but now I must bury my fat dwarf gourami... I had him a year... do any of you loach lovers know how long gouramis live??? and if the hot water helped him to the other side???
