I was shocked and saddened to ready that “Rowdy” Roddy Piper has passed away from a heart attack at just 61 years of age.
Wrestling and movie fans appreciated Mr. Piper’s skills before a camera. What I liked even more were the things Rowdy Roddy did when the camera was off and he was back to being Roderick Tombs.
By all accounts he was a humble, family man who was gracious with everyone he met. Funny that most of his wrestling career he played a heel. Mark Evanier wrote a nice tribute to Roderick Tombs aka Roddy Pipper that will show you the kind of person he was.
My thoughts and prayers go out to Roderick Tombs family, friends and fans.
