RIP Ric Drasin, The Passing of a Great Guy

Ric Drasin, Golden era bodybuilding alumni, wrestler and actor, sadly passed away, late August aged 76.
Ric was a friend and training partner of Arnie, and many other top bodybuilders of the day.
He was also the artist/designer of Gold’s Gym, Worlds Gym logo’s.
Ric made awesome video’s, interviewing all the old school champ’s, unearthing golden stories of bodybuilding history and sharing them with us. I will sorely miss his contribution.
Best wishes to his family and friends. He was a much loved guy in the community.

If aren’t already familiar with Ric, I’m sure you will get a lot from watching his youtube video’s, because in these his still lives on.

Shame, Ric really was one of the dwindling number of old school guys left who was more than willing to share stories and tales with anyone interested.

RIP big guy, one of the nicest around the block.

RIP. Loved his Youtube content.

Yeah, even if anyone doesn’t know who Ric was, his channel has some entertaining videos, and he has access to a lot of old school names in the sport.
