The last time I saw Jack LaLanne was about three years ago and I knew he could beat the crap out of me. He was a living example of what he preached and a nice man to boot, with a great sense of humor.

Just before he had heart valve surgery in 2009 at age 95, Jack Lalanne told his family that dying would wreck his image, his publicist Ariel Hankin said at the time.

His wife, Elaine, is also a wonderful example of living healthy.

“I have not only lost my husband and a great American icon, but the best friend and most loving partner anyone could ever hope for,” Elaine LaLanne, Lalanne’s wife of 51 years and a frequent partner in his television appearances, said in a written statement.

Jack doesn’t have to worry about his image being wrecked. He will continue to be an inspiration to millions.
