Joe Weider died of heart failure on March 23, 2013 at his home in Los Angeles, California at the age of 92. He is survived by his wife Betty. Joe Weider helped make bodybuilding what it today. His magazines, contests and other health and fitness endeavors catapulted the sport's popularity along with the unique characters his magazine introduced us to was none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger, Leroy Colbert, Franco Columbu, Frank Zane, Mike Katz, Sergio Oliva, Larry Scott, Robby Robinson and many more. He's probably in Heaven arranging the first Mr. Olympia contest up there (Sergio Oliva is rumored to be the favorite in the contest). R.I.P. Joe Weider.

"Today, I lost a dear friend and mentor, and the world lost one its strongest advocates of living a healthy lifestyle. Joe Weider was a titan in the fitness industry and one of the kindest men I have ever met."

--Arnold Schwarzenegger
