Mike Quarry, the light-heavyweight boxer who won 63, lost 13, and drew 6 matches between '69 and '82, who "never thought about being anything else but a fighter," who never won a championship or outshone his more famous brother Jerry, who lost his will to fight after being badly beaten in the late 70s and sobbed "I'm finished for life," died of boxing induced dementia Sunday at the age of 55.

May he rest in peace.
