Johnny Isaacs

I heard from Ray Nobile via the Iron History forum that Reg Park's brother in law Johnny Isaacs has passed away at almost 90 years of age. He had a rugged physique and was also quite strong. He worked in the TV and film industry for many years. Condolences to his family and friends.
Regards,Peter.

Re: The Best Physical Culturists of the 1960's
