Guest Book Highlights

May 04, 2015 "My sincere condolences to the entire Gagne family. It was an honor for me to work for the AWA as ring announcer. The last time I saw Verne was nearly 10 years ago at The Crusher's funeral in Milwaukee, Wi. I'm glad I had a chance to chat with Verne, Greg and Jim Brunzell. Verne was an outstanding wrestler, worker very successful business man. AWA had the best talent and staff. A true icon to the business. Bo Ivekich Oak Creek, Wi."

May 03, 2015 "I watched All Star Wrestling as a child back in the early 1970s. One of the things I most appreciate now about +Mr. Gagne was that I felt like I knew him. He seemed very authentic. The lesson he stressed in his story lines was that hard work and fair play define true character, not whether you win a match. What a great lesson and legacy. Thank you +Mr. Gagne. May you rest forever in the company of the angels and saints in Heaven, where I hope you will find your beloved wife +Mary, +Wally Karbo, +Marty O'Neill, +Reginald "The Crusher" Lisowski, +Carl "Ray" Stevens, +Andre "The Giant" Roussimoff, +Maurice "Mad Dog" Vachon, and many others!" - (Minneapolis, MN)
