Hi-
I am also related to the "Chief" (through marriage), my husband is another of his sons- who also never got to meet him (hello Desiré from Aunt Robin and Uncle Doug). Anyway...

Just wanted to correct the cause of death in the obituary. The Chief did not die in a car accident, it was from complications of diabetes (according to the death certificate).

i'm trying to find any one whom may be related to Chief Big Heart and/ or Chief Kit Fox. I have some photos that my mother had, i would like to confirm this is them. they both wrestled in the Tri-Cities in kingsport, johnson city and bristol Tn. June 1958 is the date on the photo. i'm not trying to cause any trouble or pain, but i was told that one of them was my father, i would like to find out for health reasons and for my children.
thank you for any help. DANCE IN THE WIND, GO BAREFOOT IN THE MUD
