I just wanted to pass along some sad news concerning a bodybuilding legend from the Detroit area. Dominick Duche passed away on Friday, March 5 at home with his family. This was a result of a brief, but intense illness.
Those of you who knew Dom, know that he was simply a Prince of a gentleman and a more 'stand-up" guy would be hard to find in this day-and-age. Even with all the titles he held, he was never a blowhard or a braggart…he was just a guy who would stop his workout at the drop of a hat to give you a spot or answer a training question. He held about 40 titles, but the most notable were:
Mr. Michigan - 1966
Mr. U.S.A. 50+ - 1995
Mr. America 60+ - 1998
National Champion, Master Men 60+ - 2000
Mr. Universe 60+ - 2003
The pleasure was all mine Dominick. May God bless you.
