We are currently in the process of setting up a memorial service in his honor and will release more details as they become available. Many thanks to all for the outpouring of blessings and well-wishing during this incredibly difficult time." – The TapouT FamilyMask was an early supporter of mixed martial arts and a man who never lost his free spirit, even as he went from selling shirts out of the trunk of his car to running a business empire. He'll be missed.
