Always a champ in this corner, but never moreso than when I saw the true sense of gratitude on his face when Benny "Kid" Paret's son hugged him on the TV special many years after the tragic bout.

Will always remember you since you got me a "A" in my English class at Temple in 1965. The teacher couldn't believe a woman would write about a boxer! RIP

An all time great in the ring and a gentleman everywhere. A real man and a true champion.

I was selling at a souvenier stand at the Oakland Coliseum in 1971 when I ran into Emile. He was with Gil Glancy. Emile came over to my stand and talked to me. Later on I went out in the stands to sell and I ran into him again. He was very gracious. A ready smile. He fought at the Cow Palace that week, beating one of our local favorites, Nate Collins. I hope he is at peace.

I remember watching him on television as a kid. May he rest in peace.

A champion both inside and outside of the ring and a St. Thomas treasure.

Rest in peace Emile.
