That has not been revealed, but Generation Iron was among the sites reporting that he has passed away. Generation Iron called Mendenhall “the greatest Bodybuilder to never turn Pro,” calling him “the Cincinnati bodybuilding legend Matt Mendenhall” and saying he “was regarded by many, including Lee Haney, as having one of the greatest physiques of the era.” He earned the nickname “Mr. Genetics,” according to Fitness Volt.  reported on August 28. 2021.

He was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, on June 26, 1960, and grew up in a family addicted to fitness; three of his siblings were bodybuilders, with two of them competing while he was a child.

In his early years, Matt didn’t follow the family steps. He was a keen football player and enjoyed pole-vaulting. Nevertheless, his amazing genetics let him grow a great physique without entering the gym.

So sad to learn of the passing of Matt Mendenhall. One of the best champs who was unfailing positive and full of life whenever I interacted with him. He was always very respectful and dignified even if by chance there was something unflattering said about him or his peers. He used to love visiting our group on a regular basis. There hasnt been a year since we became friends that he didnt wish me on my birthday or routinely asked about me! I will miss the great champion and I hope his soul R.I.P. Sincere condolences to his family and friends
P.S. most of the tributes are carrying his morphed photo. I hope folks course correct and take down/replace that badly morphed photo of Matt
