It’s Wednesday. You know what that means.
On Saturday the 26th of December, the world got word that Jon Huber a/k/a Mr. Brodie Lee had passed away, sparking an outpouring of grief, love, and respect from every corner of the wrestling world. As Jon’s colleagues, family, and friends shared their stories, a picture emerged of the man behind the wrestler that fans did not often get to see. It was a picture of a generous spirit, a kind and thoughtful friend, a loving father, and a dedicated husband.
The universal love and respect expressed was unlike anything following the death of a public figure that I can remember. It was the sort of response that would make you respect the man even if you were just learning of him. It was the sort of response that makes you think about what you want people to say about you when your time comes, the sort of impact you want to have on the lives around you, and the sort of legacy you want to leave for your family.
As a young father, the stories that have most moved me this week are about what a wonderful father Jon was. Hearing how proud Brodie Jr. was of his father and how much he cherished spending time with him was almost too much. As I write this I’m looking over at my 2-year-old (who is reenacting their favorite scenes from “The Great Pumpkin” for the 1000th time) and thinking about all of the things we’ve done and the things we’re still to experience. I’m thinking about watching them grow up and all of the life events I’m excited to share with them. I’m thinking of all the father/son stuff that Jon and Brodie Jr. are going to miss out on. It’s all so unfair.
Tonight, as I watch Jon’s friends and colleagues celebrate his life, I will be grateful for the years of entertainment that he gave me, the sacrifices that he made to give it, and the example he’s set for me even in death.
Rest in Peace Jon Huber. Thank you.
