  1. I was fortunate to have met him and trained at his World’s Gym in Campbell, Ca after he left Gold’s in San Jose in the late 80’s. He was still a big guy and a few years later started training for the Masters. He was nice enough to show this young teenager some workouts, give advice and share stories of his bodybuilding competitions. A class act from what I knew. I only wish I had the courage back then to pick his brain some more. Rest in Peace, Mr. Wilson and Thank You!
