Loss of Don Fargo, The Chain Gang!

Again we have lost a tough guy in the World of Professional Wrestling!
Don Fargo, 1/2 of The Chain Gang and Legionnaires passed away in Pensacola Florida this past weekend, November 8th, 2015.
I had the pleasure of Co Hosting Hartbeat Radio and Don was our guest.
I asked Don to talk about the AWA and WWA Days in Chicago and Indianapolis.
He obliged us and was more than happy to talk about the matches against Dick The Bruiser and all of the great stars of the 50.s, 60's and 70's.
In 1969 they defeated Dick The Bruiser and The Crusher and later would defeat Dick The Bruiser and Yukon Moose Cholak for The WWA World Heavyweight Tag Team Titles!
He was a legitimate tough guy, but a man who didn't toot his own horn, or turn on the business.
The Chain Gang were infamous for the Wisconsin melee where they got into a bar fight with real bikers who shot Kenny Mack (Frank Dillinger) in the leg which ended his career.
Don went back to the WWA and teamed with "Sgt" Jacques Goulet and formed The Legionnaires.
Don was honored by the CAC (Cauliflower Alley Club) in 2004.
Although we have lost another great, Don will always be remembered here at Classic Professional Wrestling!
