Sick Parkinson , also he suffered from senile dementia, He had passed a couple of spills and had removed a tumor of the head. No doubt it was all a fighter. A character he used during his time as coach to achieve many successes.
Born in Bosemb, by then East Prussia in 1935, he lived in his childhood the terrible hardships of war, concentration camps and hardship after the conflict.
