In brief: God
One would expect a poor prognosis for longevity, but god only knows.

In brief: Life expectancy
It depends on a number of factors, including family history and your personal medical history.
Insurance actuarials actually have tables that estimate this, too!

In brief: Life expectancy
You ask a difficult question as there are multiple factors involved in that person's life expectancy.
If one concentrates on dialysis patients, the average life expectancy for a 60-65 year old on dialysis is 4.5 years compared to 17-22 years for similarly aged person not on dialysis. The severity of his CHF would play a role in the patient's life expectancy and would diminish it. Ask his doctor.
