My heart hurts this morning. My friend and Highland games Legend Paul Ferency passed away. This is a very hard one to take. Big Paul was one of my favorite people. One of the biggest humans I have ever been around, with a heart that was even bigger. I will never forget the times I got to spend with Paul at Celtic Classic. Eating hibachi and icecream and listening to the amazing stories he would tell. We lost not only a friend and Legend, but one of the smartest historical minds in all of strength athletics. Paul had more strength knowledge in one finger than most could hope for in a lifetime. Gonna miss your random messages big Paul. Loved talking about strength and your amazing kids all the time. Rest in peace buddy.

Growing up in the PHILLIPSBURG area, having a family restaurant and playing sports you meet a lot of local athletes and people who when you are young you always looked up to. In middle school and high school. Louis Gary Talijan. Steve Serfass Paul Ferency. Would stop by our gym in my garage to work out. These men were mountains to us back then and always teaching us respect and to train hard for whatever we did. ALWAYS REMEMBER!!! Rip Paul. Thoughts and prayers to your family and all
