    Default MIKE MATARAZZO: RIP

    Just heard from Mel Chancey that Mike Matarazzo passed away late last night. I believe he was at Stanford University in N. California awaiting a heart transplant. I loved the guy. More details later.

    Default MIKE MATARAZZO: RIP

    Sad to say goodbye so soon!
    One of the true hardcore Bodybuilders who never forgot where he came from or who he was.
    He would always start out by saying, "My Father this or my Father that" which spoke volumes to how much he thought of his father and now he's reunited with.
    While I feel sad for the family I feel grateful to have known Mike and the kind of person he was. This selfishly sucks but man he he made a life out of this sport, saw the world, inspired many and became known all over the world based on his blue collar no BS Training.

    Iron Mike may you rest in peace and give your father a big hug for me, it's the one thing I long for and look forward to with my dad.
    You will always be Remembered by those who knew you because we simply can never forget you.

    Nicely worded Shawn. I can't think of anyone who didn't like Mike.

    Be sure you are getting blood work done from the start guys.

    Lets not get into whether steroids played a part or not. The man just died. Lets respect that.

    R.I.P, Mike was the first bodybuilder I saw in a magazine and made me think " This dude is a freak!!! ".

    My prayers are with you and your family.
