How did Ric Drasin die?

Ric Drasin, a legendary figure in bodybuilding, movie stunts and professional wrestling, has died at the age of 76. Drasin was being treated in a hospital for a kidney problem. Despite his many achievements, arguably Drasin’s finest moment came when he sketched the iconic logo for Gold’s Gym.

Drasin was a native of Bakersfield, California. He trained with Arnold Schwarzenegger during his time in bodybuilding. In 2012, Drasin won the first Joe Gold Lifetime Achievement Award thanks to his accomplishments in bodybuilding and wrestling, according to his official website. At the time of his death, Drasin was living in Sherman Oaks, California.

Drasin’s children, Sami, Adam and Shane, announced his sad passing in a August 30 Facebook post. The message read in part, ” It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we have to announce the passing of our father. He was everything to us.” The Drasin family described him as a “father, role model, and friend.” The post concluded with the words, “Ric’s immeasurable presence will be with us all forever.”
