"Rowdy" Roddy Piper died from a heart attack at the age of 61.
I actually got to meet him when I was 13 at a wrestling event in the town where I grew up. He was quite the entertainer in the ring and I loved the film They Live.
Mr. Piper, you will be missed.

My stepdaughter Cassie met him at a convention back in April. She was security supervisor there and got to meet all of the celebrities that attended. He thought Cassie was awesome because she gave him a pack of bubblegum and said they would handle kicking any ass that day for him. It really made his day, he shook her hands and then gave her a big hug and a kiss. Roddy was a good down to earth man, very sad to see him go.

Roddy was awesome. Always loved Piper's Pit back in the good old days of wrestling.
