Ninety-six year-old fitness guru Jack LaLanne has passed away from respiratory failure due to pneumonia on Sunday. He lived a long life, encouraging all of us to eat right, exercise and stay healthy — which he also practiced on a daily basis.
His wife of 51 years, Elaine LaLanne, said, “I have not only lost my husband and a great American icon, but the best friend and most loving partner anyone could ever hope for.”
He previously joked, “I can’t afford to die. It would wreck my image.”
May he rest in peace.
