    78.
    I heard that he drowned.
    A sad way to go if you are in good health at that age.

    What a flipping dude.
    Beautiful body and I say that as a tall guy.
    Fantastic athleticism too.

    Woah, I was all about these guys when I was first starting to lift weights. I feel bad for Arnold today, both these guys I looked up to, and now he's lost a buddy.

    Wyrd bið ful āræd.

    Yeah, the very first gym I ever trained in had a poster of Franco on the wall. One of the legends of the Golden Age of Bodybuilding. RIP.

    Fate is inescapable indeed:(

    Great physique. Nice guy(Ive heard) and a true athlete not just bodybuilder. Had some really good hands(boxing) and footwork for such a muscular dude. RIP champ.
