If there is a single block with No Symptoms , he may not need any procedure till 'emergency' happens in the form of a heart attack. As a safety , collateral blood vessels lying low and not opened up start working to take the load of blocked vessel. apple cider vinegar/ lemon juice with honey /pomegranate fruit or juice helps be careful about other factors aggravating blockages- smoking / pollution bad fats in blood no exercise lots of negative stress erratic lifestyle. take care of all the 13 factors which are avoidable except our genes which make bad cholesterol high despite every precaution taken.

Your father has one wire (right sided) of the normal conduction system of body as blocked as RBBB, it is possible that we age he may have developed problems in other parts of conduction system as well and so it may not be functioning normally and leading to low heart rate, you should immediately consult a cardiologist, he will require Electrophysiology study (to study his conduction system) and Angiography and if any abnormailty is found he will need a pacemaker.
