That one of him was from the 1971 MR O where he was "allowed" bye the IFBB to "Guess pose" but not actually Compete against Arnold, this MM below is 1 year Later in Japan where IMO he was Possibly in his Greatest ever Shape Conditioning wise Feathered Delts and all...now imagine this Physique in this sort of shape on the Gear these days.........

Sergio's wake is going to be on Monday, November 19th, at the Barr Funeral Home, 6222 North Broadway Chicago, IL 60660 #773-743-4034. It will be from 2-8 PM.
The burial will be on November 20th with a 10 AM Mass at St. Gertrude Catholic Parish 1420 West Granville Avenue Chicago, IL 60660-1810 #773-764-3621
Sergio's Memorial Fund was approved to Frank Merchante. It seems that they're going to try to have a memorial after the real funeral like they did with Robert Kennedy.

This is one of the most cold-blooded posts I have ever seen here and that is saying much

This bastard 'vascsurgeon'- hopefully not a real surgeon but somehow connected to the medical industry racket in the US , is actually lamenting that he is going to loose the opportunity rip off dying people because of 'obamacare'

well if there was ever an endorsement for obamacare this is it, whatever obamacare is/might be. People like this are the scum of the earth. They are happy to let people without $$ die so as to make totally unjustified $$s, and then have the gull to complain if there is even a slight risk this is going to be taken way from them

Compared to this shit all PED dealers are saintly folk

Just another "keyboard tuff guy" Sometimes it is better to keep your mouth closed and let people wonder if you are a moron, then to open it and remove all doubt that you are.
I am not surprised at your inabilty to understand the context of my post or even the words used, you can not even use correct punctuation and spelling in your post.
I could expalin what dialysis and dialysis access is all about to you, but, you wouldn't understand any of it, sadly.

We just returned from Sergio's wake in Chicago, and the photos there of Sergio's home life with his children moved me immensely. I spoke with Sergio's daughter and she talked of her father with tenderness, 'my best friend, I loved him so much', she said, and that choked me up....no talk of his Myth greatness, just a daughter mourning her dad. The funeral is tomorrow which I plan to attend with Bill Seno.

July 4, 1941
71 yrs old
Born in cuba
Sad news. Sad 71 is a pretty good run, but in today's day and age he should have been blessed with at least ten more years.

Its mostly out of my hands, but I'd like to believe I can make it to the centenarian stage with most of my mental faculties, and able to bathe and feed myself.  Undecided That's what I strive for, and  I've at least got genetics in my favor. Although quality of years always trumps the quantity of years for a life well lived.

Sergio was one the "great ones", whose physique and awe-inspiring photography, for which he was the subject, will live on forever.

Looked shorter to me. Probably the insanely round and thick musclebellies compacted his look a little without diminishing the aesthetics.

Small funeral and wake, no 'celebrities, just family and friends. Possibly Arnold at this memorial in January?"

Sergio was one of a kind. In 1966 I took the bus to the Duncan Y.M.C.A. in Chicago in hopes of seeing him train. He would come in laughing and joking, do a few light sets and take a nap on the incline board. This happened three day's straight and I finally gave up. What a genetic freak, 20 inch arms and his waist was tiny, probably smaller than his thighs.
Mr. America, Bob Gaijda was also there and looked small compared to Sergio.
