The founder of several fitness magazines, as well as the Mr. Olympia contest and Weider brand weights, Joe Weider has died. He was 93.

Rest in peace.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

"When I first met Joe Weider I just thought that it was like meeting... I don't know how it feels to meet God, but I felt like, you know, God had a lot to do with it, so for me it was almost like I was in the presence of a God... you know, it was one of those moments to where you almost don't want to say anything, you just want to listen, because every thing, every voice, every tone, every pitch that came out of that spirit of being, you know, was of strength and knowledge and wisdom, and that was a moment that lives with me now" - Kevin Levrone
