Sadly my dear friend Frenchy Martin passed this morning after a long battle with cancer. Frenchy worked in Calgary for my dad and was an often opponent for me while we wrestled in Puerto Rico together. I was fortunate to talk and interview Frenchy one last time on my podcast only a few weeks ago. May God bless my friend and may his family find peace that his suffering has ended

The Montreal Journal reported last month that Martin was moved into hospice care and was only expected to live a few weeks. He told The Journal:

“I led an extraordinary life. I am proud to have succeeded in the world of wrestling. I am no more worthy than another, but I’m not afraid of death. I accept the result.”
