Thank you Jack! You have been such an inspirtation to many for so many years.
I have very fond memories of my mother loosing her after pregnancy weight and inches, by doing exercises with you, when you aired on television back in the 60's!
You will be missed, but never ever forgotten.
God Bless you and your family.

That's really shocking and so sad. I thought he would live to 100 at least. He was really a wonderful advocate for healthy living, which is so needed in today's society. Like another poster said, he was an inspiration. Condolences to his family and friends. Rest in peace, Mr. LaLanne.
