    Sorry to hear about this, John! Joe seemed to be indestructible to me! I remember seeing his classic fight with Bill Wallace in Chicago. I knew Bill from my Indiana Tracy days since he was from Muncie. Joe lost that fight, but if they had to fight out back in the alley behind the arena, I think even Bill would have felt that Joe would have won that battle.

    The last time I felt like this was when I heard that Jay T Will had died so young. I trained with him in Columbus when I was at Ohio State.

    Rest in peace, brothers.

    As this video will attest, for Joe Lewis it was about the people first and foremost. The great man will be missed. He made a huge impact in the martial arts.
