Eight time World Heavyweight Champion Harley Race’s wife B.J. Race passed away Friday in Osage beach, Missouri at the Lake regional Health System where she was being treated for pneumonia and other complications. The jury is still out on the exact cause of his wife’s death, Race says.
“She was the most wonderful woman in the world,” Race says. “It’s almost impossible to believe that she’s gone.”
When it came to Harley’s World League Wrestling league and the Race Wrestling Academy for up and coming pro wrestlers in Eldon, Mo., “She ran everything,” Race says of his wife.
The B.J. I knew was a totally organized, amazingly fun to hang out with go-getter of a woman with a sense of humor that would not quit. Hey, she married Harley and took on everything that comes with that. If that doesn’t qualify someone for modern day sainthood, what does?
Services here Tuesday go down at 2 p.m at Mt. Moriah Terrace Park, 801 NW 108th Street in Kansas City with a visitation between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. at the funeral home.
