…at the age of 76.

My kid knew him from the Mario Brothers TV show but people of my age remember his as the tag team manager back in those days when Wrestling was still pretending to be real (and was to the 10 year olds watching it) but was not campy enough to be mocked nor violent enough to be just turned off.

The wrestlers were working class guys the managers were funny and good guys and bad guys were clearly defined.

Captain Lou was a bad guy but he was always fun.

Sure it wasn’t the business or the profit generator it is today but it was better.

So dies another piece of my youth.
