We all knew that Leon Allen White was in bad health, but it’s never easy when someone we grew up watching has passed. He was 63. Big Van Vader had been struggling with his health for a couple years, but things took a turn for the worse last month.
Around a month ago my father was diagnosed with a severe case of Pneumonia. He fought extremely hard and clinically was making progress. Unfortunately, on Monday night his heart had enough and it was his time. pic.twitter.com/hJYjumvxjH

QD – Love him or hate him, White worked very hard for the fans and gave all of himself in everything he did. White was the epitome of old school wrestler and did everything in his power to preserve that. Everyone at WR sends our best wishes to his family, friends, and fans. He will be missed. RIP Vader.
