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.

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