Easiest first issue is water condition. Keeping fish is about taking care of the water to a good extent: changing it often enough, keeping it the right temperature, adding the right things to it. Sometimes we don't know why they get sick. But go through the options: water condition, any changes (food, lighting, additions to the tank), etc.

Sometimes, fish get old and they die. It's just nature.

There are many, possibly even hundreds, of possible reasons a betta could get sick. And as Canuck Fins said, sometimes, 2-4 years, Betta fish just die because of age, just like anything else.

Water condition is a big thing. Did the fish have a heater? What was the temp of the water? Was the tank(if big enough) cycled properly? How often were tank water changes? Was the tank a proper size?

What were your fish's symptoms, if any?
