King Curtis Iaukea passed away Saturday at the age of 73. He worked for several territories during his career, including the WWWF, Australia, the Pacific Northwest, Hawaii, San Francisco, All Star Pro Wrestling in Britain and Championship Wrestling from Florida. He held the WWWF Tag Team belts with Baron Mikel Scicluna among other titles and was one of the first pro wrestlers to crossover into film when he appeared in a Three Stooges video. According to his son Rocky, he had been ill for some time.

On behalf of everyone here on the website, I would like to express our sympathies and condolences to the fans, family and friends of Mr. Iaukea.
