What is wrong with saying 'died'?

Why has everyone suddenly begun refusing to accept the inevitable?

Reminiscent of the line by Robert Newton in the film,
This Happy Breed ...

Dunno, mate. Ask Burt, he gets really pissy when you remind him of his
looming expiration.

I've noticed more elderly people say passed away when someone has died
of essentially of old age. It seems to be a form of short hand that it
was just time for them to die. Whereas they use died when someone has
died from other reasons. So you can pass away because you reached 90 or
you can die because you caught flu. Or slipped on ice, broke a hip and
never recovered. Or hit by a bus. Or had a heart attack after kids
snapped your car aerial off again.
