I'm not entirely certain what I would consider my culture to be, so I can't really awnser that one in particular. Most people seem to be afraid of death which I could see easily since you really don't know what happens no matter how much you believe in something. I prefer to view things in more of a... passive way I suppose. Things will happen no matter how hard you try to prevent something, and it's better to accept things that happen than stew over them.
I guess what I'm trying to say is I'm not particularly afraid of death. Do I want to die? No, in fact I wish I could live forever, but that's not because I'm afraid of death. I guess if I died and I could show an emotion about it, it'd be a shrug.
