RIP - Tony Lanza

From Karl Lauer -

Tony Lanza, a former wrestler known as one of the truly great wrestling photographers, died in his native Montreal at age 84.

Tony was a member of the CAC for over 20 years and sent us a lot of great photos for use in our projects. Tony was a close friend of all 3 presidents and is highly respected the world over for his contribution to the business.

There is a fine tribute of him on the Slam web site, written by our own Greg Oliver. http://slam.canoe.ca/Slam/Wrestling/2005/01/25/909676.html

We at the CAC send our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Tony Lanza.
