I saw him in Columbus, 1970, in the 82.5 (light heavies). I think he struggled to press 130 (286), had a pretty good snatch, then bombed in the jerk with a weight in excess of 400 lbs! Glad to see that he eventually did set up a couple of great WR C&J's, but sad to see that he passed away at such a young age.
