In brief: Possibly

Unexplained weight loss, especially significant weight loss as you describe, should be investigated.

In brief: Should at least

Make sure he gets checked out.
That amount of weight loss, in that period of time suggest that something is askew with your husband. It may very well be a subtle change in his energy balance including activity levels compared to caloric intake, that actually is accounting for this weight lost, but you still want to make sure there is nothing else going on.
