He is better known as Mr Wonderful Paol Orndorff. Many of you will remember him for his physique. Many will remember him for his intensity. But if only I could make you understand and see his heart. He will always be Pop, Paw Paw, and Daddy at home.
And as much as many of you hated him as a wrestler, he absolutely loved you for it. He was a fantastic father who showed me more love than I ever deserved. I love you daddy." In addition, he wrote in the description of the photo that in his profile biography he leaves a link to make a donation to meet the expenses of the funeral and asks his father's friends to contact him if anyone wants to speak at the funeral.
