Arn Anderson Announces Death Of Son Barrett

Arn Anderson Has Announced The Tragic Passing Of His Older Son Barrett

Through his social media accounts, wrestling legend Arn Anderson (Martin Lunde) revealed some truly tragic news for his family, as he announced the passing of his eldest son, Barrett. 

Anderson’s account tweeted out;

“Last night my family suffered a loss that should never be felt by any parent. Our older son Barrett passed away. I am struggling to write this. Tell those you love that you love them. Barrett was just 37.”

His younger brother, AEW wrestler Brock Anderson, also tweeted with a tribute to Barrett; 

“I never thought of what to say in something like this because it's not something you just have on stand by waiting for the day to come... Last night I lost my brother Barrett...and since that moment I found out, my body has been in shock. It is not clicking in my brain that he's gone and idk if it ever will. My parents are in absolute shambles and for the first time in my life, I saw my Dad, a man's man, absolutely break down in tears... Having to see my parents get that call is the most excruciating and cruel thing I've ever witnessed, and I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy. Idk why but one thought keeps popping in to my head. I remember him driving me around at 7 years old in his brand new blue Chevy Silverado blasting Young Jeezy and Outkast. Right before the line, 'What's cooler than being cool??,' hit, he would ask me the same question. And before my young mind could register the question, he would cut me off and shout, 'ICE COLDDD,' and would send me into hysterics every single time. Memories like that make me not sad for losing him so young, but happy that I had him as long as I did. All my life I've been a little brother...and now I'm not even a f*cking brother at all. I love you Wimpster”

No further details have yet been released about Barrett’s passing, but condolences and respects go to the Anderson family.
