Mick Foley has written a eulogy for WWE.com remembering Ken Timbs, who died last week. The article reads:
“I used to hear stories about Ken Timbs as a wrestler. Apparently he and Eric Embry were quite a tag team at one time. As “El Fabuloso Blondie” in Mexico, he didnÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢??t shy away from the legit heat that came with pro-American gimmick. I believe he was also the man who introduced many hardcore stipulation matches to Mexican audiences. But even though I wrestled him once on a small independent show in a town IÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢??ve long forgotten, I canÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢??t say IÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢??m all that familiar with him as a wrestler. Instead, I knew him as a father who personally delivered all nine of his children, I knew him as a friend, who always had a warm, open home for me to visit. And I knew him as a man who liked to make my childrenÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢??s dreams come true, and who never charged me for that privilege.”
