Joe will be missed. I discovered his advice while searching for cancer cures for my little brother. We were told he'd not survive chemo/surgeries for more than 18 months--yet he's still here, 4 years later, because of healthy advice. Lifting his wife, Betty, & family in prayer. May you feel comforted by the Peace which passes all understanding, and the Love that never dies. Warm regards & big hugs. xoxo

THANK YOU! Joe Weider... Rest in Peace
long live the godfather of bodybuilding!
April 14, 2013
I will miss you Joe. I am 55 years old. I first heard of you back in 1979 when Frank Zane was winning his third Olympia. I have spent my adult life using your principles in the weight room and in life. You were a second father to me, especially when my father came here from Canada, so I felt I could relate to you perhaps better. Thanks for everything you have done to inspire my life and millions of others just like me. I can assure you that all of us unknowns loved you as much as our betters whom you made into champions. It has been fun. Who knows, maybe I will meet you in heaven. God bless you and keep you and your beloved wife Betty.
