In brief: Directly
End of life decisions are extremely important in people of all ages and health conditions.
The best way to approach these matters is directly - it is important not only for you to find out what his end of life wishes are, but for you to inform him of yours. Printing out advanced directives paperwork to discuss is a good place to start for initiating this conversation.

In brief: Say it will help you
One other factor to bring up is that spouses often find it very difficult to make decisions if they haven't had input.
Tell him: i want to do the right thing for you, and i know it would be much easier for me if we could talk about this once or twice.
