October 21, 1942 ~ May 14, 2017 (age 74) Hatfield Quotes: "Dr Fred Hatfield was the first strength guru to talk about many subjects that others take credit for today. Practiced everything he preached. Fearless in his pursuit of knowledge and peace of mind heart and soul!!" - Ed Coan "Fred Hatfield was a good friend of mine. Over the last couple of years I enjoyed our friendly jabbing back and forth with him. I often got on his case for throwing words out there that only a few ppl understood. Good bye old buddy. See you at the chalk box somewhere down the road." -Larry Pacifico

A post from Josh Bryant: "This the hardest post I ever posted on facebook. My mentor in lifting and life, Dr. Fred Hatfield, has passed away unexpectedly. As you know Fred is one of the best of lifters of all-time, the best sports scientist of all-time but that means nothing compared to what a great person he was. Any success I have had I owe to Fred. Fred is one of my best friends. Fred lived life to the fullest everyday and was the happiest he had ever been with his true love Gloria.

Brad Madvig is a 42 year old married man from Maple Grove, Minnesota. In September of 2015, Brad began experiencing vision problems and this led to a disgnosis of Lhermitte-Duclos disease, which is a very rare benign brain tumor. Since then , he has been constantly battling excessive cerebrospinal fluid on the brain (hydrocephalus), which has resulted in increased intercrainial pressure that has damages his optic nerves and diminished his vision to the point that he has not been able to work or drive since last September. He underwent a number of painful spinal taps to help relieve the pressure, but these weren't a long-term solution.
