The Times reports:
On Monday morning, Mr. Rollino went for a walk in his Brooklyn neighborhood, a daily routine. It was part of the Great Joe Rollino’s greatest feat, a display of physical dexterity and stamina so subtle that it revealed itself only if you happened to ask him his date of birth: March 19, 1905. He was 104 years old and counting.
A Brooklyn institution, Joe Rollino was killed in a traffic accident on Monday morning. One of the last of the old-time strongmen he was arguably, pound-for-pound, the strongest man who ever lived. Even at 103, he was still capable of unusual feats:
Mr. Rollino wowed the crowd at the party … he told stories about the old days, of course, but he was more than just talk, even at 103. Mr. Rollino put a quarter in his teeth. Then he bent it.
