The legendary bodybuilder who was most known for his phenomenal physique in the 70s passed away on Sunday at the age of 83 due to health problems.
Keuhn started his bodybuilding journey in 1964 where he placed 26th at the Mr. America contest. But his best achievements were winning the Overall North America (1975) and Overall Masters Mr. America (1977).
Kuehn was a great competitor but perhaps he will be remembered more for his great attitude and passion for the sport.
Kuehn was supposedly confined to a wheelchair for many years before he passed and it was evident his health problems were too much for him.
