Bill Good (William Leisey Good) (May 14, 1910 – April 19, 2007)
Walter Good (January 27, 1908 – July 8, 2001)
Harry Good (died in 1998)
Does anyone know the full birth and death dates for Harry Good? He lived into his 90s like his other brothers.
There is a brief description here:
https://www.oldtimestrongman.com/blog/2 ... -brothers/The Good Brothers, Harry, Walter and Bill, were a trio of weightlifters and Strongmen from Eastern Pennsylvania. Bill was the strongest of the three, winning seven Senior National Weightlifting Titles (1930-1937) and competing in two Olympic Games (1932 Los Angeles, 1936 Berlin). Bill Good was the first American to Clean & Jerk 350 Pounds. Walter Good competed in the 1936 Olympics as well. Harry was the U.S. Professional Champion in 1933 in addition to writing training articles for a number of different strength publications and training courses. Harry Good went on to establish the “Good Barbell Company” in the late 1930’s. Mark Berry also used the Good Brothers to demonstrate several of the exercises in his book Physical Training Simplified (1930).
I have done some research on Bill Good, he died aged 96. He may have been a vegetarian. He preferred to eat raw cabbage, oatmeal and soybeans etc. Does anyone know anything else about this.
I believe these guys longevity was associated with their diet and way of living. They did not take alcohol or drugs and ate fresh foods.
This publication in Iron Game History says the Good brothers also had a sister called Mary who was 88 in 1994, anyone know what age she lived to?
