Franco Columbo Passed at 78

Arnold posted a touching tribute to his life long friend.

https://medium.com/@Schwarzenegger/m...d-6c3fca83e5b3

Youíve heard me say that I donít like when people call me a self-made man.
Youíve even heard me say that youíre part of the reason I could never accept that label.

But I wanted you to know why.
From the minute we met in Munich, you were my partner in crime. We pushed each other, we competed with each other, and we laughed at every moment along the way.

When I finally got to America, I was alone. Iíd left my family, my country, my whole life behind. So when I asked Joe Weider to bring you to train with me, it was because I knew I wasnít the same without my best friend. I could thrive without money, without my parents, but I couldnít thrive without you.
I am devastated today. But I am also so, so grateful for the 54 years of friendship and joy we shared. The pumps, the chess games, the construction work, the meals, the pranks, the life lessons ó we did it all together. We grew and we learned and we loved. My life was more fun, more colorful, and more complete because of you.

I will always miss you. But Iíll also know that a part of you lives on in me, in Debbie, in Maria, and in the millions of people you inspired every day you lived. And I will be there for Maria and Debbie, so you can rest now with no worries.
I love you Franco. I will always remember the joy you brought to my life, the advices you gave me, and the twinkle in your eye that never disappeared. You were my best friend.

Love always,
Arnold

It's very sad, RIP Franco:(

Did they ever say what "the accident" was that killed him?

Sad. Always enjoyed seeing him. He played one of the terminators in the movie.

I heard:

1 - He drown while swimming.

2 - He had a heart attack while swimming (and drowned?).

Condolences to Franco's family, friends, and Arnold. Good Lord, who can say they have had a friend THAT close for so many decades, not to mention all the stuff they experienced together? Arnold must be absolutely crushed right now - Franco really was like his best brother.
