I knew George at Abilene Christian. He was an absolutely great guy. I cherish his memories. The last thing he ever said to me...even when he was struggling on his throws...was "See you at the Nationals." He finally made it!

He is missed

Mr French was one tough guy. I had George as my gym teacher in Jr high in Sherman Oaks, CA 1969~1970. He was a tough teacher/coach. Had us climbing ropes to the 40' ceiling w/ no safety systems and doing 100 (what he called) jump-squats, all without much training or other physical prep or exercises. I did respect him none the less. He obviously made an impression on me and I think of him every 4 yrs (@ summer Olympic time).

George and I were in Theta Chi at Long Beach State. George had a '53 Olds ragtop painted loud green. RIP George.

I met George at the "dungeon" in Santa Monica in the early 60's and he was an inspiration and a very friendly person. I heartily concur with all the good things said about him, he truly was a class act. RIP George.

Recently I was searching for weightlifting shoes online and was reminded of George Frenn. I attended Cerritos HS in the late 80's and had the great privilege of being taught OLY Lifts by a true Legend and Gentleman. I credit George with preventing injury to myself in Day to Day lifting and Training by having learned proper technique! As a HS senior I was able to Clean n Jerk then Press more than my bodyweight a feat which earned me a A+ in his PE Class both years. I can Still hear him yelling, "Don't drop the Weights" and to this day I do not...

Every now and then I look for a throwback Strongman Comp on ESPN Classic and hope to see a great and strong Mentor.

Thanks for all the lessons in Life and Lifting, Mr. George Frenn

I recently found out that George passed away in 2006. I threw the shot at Long Beach State in the mid 60's. I saw George nearly everyday. He always had some words of encouragement for me and he was an inspiration to us all. On a pound for pound basis, he was by far the strongest man in the world. Rest in peace George. You made a difference.

Here it is November of 2012 and I am reminded of something I learned from George. Training with George and Roger Estep was a dream come true. Your lessons and name live on.

George and I dated for some time before I married and after my divorce in the late 60's-early 70's. We spent alot of time aggravating Avery Brundage about training facilities for our Olympic Team...without much success. I just found some great photos of us and decided to search for him. Unfortunately, I waited too long...something I will always regret. Just a great guy in every way!

I was lucky enough to meet and train with my powerlifting idol George Frenn. He was friendly, and generous with his time and advice. He inspires me in my training even to this day. RIP George, you were one of our greatest strength athletes. You will be missed!

George was a great man and teacher. I am very sorry to read that he did not grace the Earth with his presence much longer than he did. He was strict and fair with a great attitude.
