His funeral and/or viewing was attended in massillon, Ohio, by indy workers from five different states, who traveled the distance to pay their respects. Among those attending were Michael “Mr 8by10” Cruz, Scotty Sabre, The Time Traveler, Big Tom, Tim Shady, Shasta,and many people from WAR promotions in western Ohio, where he had been receiving a major push. A pair of his boots were put out to be signed by the wrestlers, as well as the guestbook.
