Check BP while he will be at relaxed state, 3-4 times a day, and make a average out of it. He can just modify his diet, and do exercise / brisk walking for 40-45 minutes a day.

There's a widening of pulse pressure which could point towards valvular pathologies as well. Needs complete cardio workup and detailed consult.
