Closest I ever got to one of them IRL was Del Wilkes, aka The Patriot. Never trained with him but did train in the same gym yrs ago, might nod "hello" at each other now and then, that was about it. He'd had some publicized troubles in the past about pain killer abuse, eventually retired due to what was described as a torn tricep. Been living a clean, quiet life ever since as a car salesman ... and just died 2 weeks ago at 59yo ... heart attack.. . . I'll say though....71 isn't too shabby for most of those guys, imo. These guys lived in straight abuse and body wear and tear . . .
