I am deeply sorry to hear of the passing of Professor Joseph Arbena, who is the true pioneer in the field of Latin American sport history. Unfortunately I was not able to get acquainted personally with him in the present life, but I would like to thank him for the great works he has done since it is on his legacy that we younger historians on the field construct our own studies. I believe it is a duty for our generation to continue with his project of Annotated Bibliography on Latin American Sports. My sincere condolences to his family. Q.E.P.D.

Joe was a great colleague and gentleman who followed me as editor of the Journal of Sport History. His passing is a big loss for historic scholarship, not to mention his beloved family. God Bless.

I am truly saddened by the passing of Prof. Arbena. I worked with him briefly in 2010-2011 and kept in touch since. He was always very friendly, professional, and insightful. His legacy in the history of sport in Latin America will be eternal. It was my sincere privilege to have met him and received his support. Que descanse en paz el muy querido y admirado Profesor Dr. Don José Arbena.
