Although I did not know Reg Park on a personal level, I do remember a time in 1975 in South Africa when he extended an invitation for me to stay at his home. Reg took me out to dinner to a restaurant where normally a black man would not be able to go. I was very grateful for his hospitality and kindness that I received from him and his family during my stay in Johannesburg. I do wish him and his family the best. I will always remember him as being an inspiration to me in my bodybuilding career.
