Vegetarian strongman dies at 104

What a sad ending to a remarkable life! V and I were surprised when we read that he was a vegetarian, the fact is buried in the article.

At a Mighty 104, Gone While Still Going Strong
People called him the Great Joe Rollino, the Mighty Joe Rollino and even the World’s Strongest Man, and what did it matter if at least one of those people was Mr. Rollino himself.
Mr. Rollino stayed away from meat. And cigarettes. And alcohol. He said he walked five miles every morning, rain or shine.
