Joe Rollino, known for lifting 3,200 lbs. in his days as the Coney Island strongman, died at age 104 after being hit by a minivan in Brooklyn on Monday. Read more on The Great Joe Rollino’s death below.

Joe Rollino, 104, died after being hit by a minivan on Monday.

Rollino suffered a broken pelvis, head trauma and broken ribs when he was struck by a minivan as he crossed Bay Ridge Parkway in Brooklyn. Rollino was transported to Lutheran Medical Center, and died from his injuries later that day.

The Great Joe Rollino would have turned 105 on March 19th, and went on five mile walks daily. Rollino didn’t eat meat, drink, or smoke and swam frequently, even in winter.

“People told me he holds the record for swimming every day for eight years,” said Louis Scarcella, 59, a former homicide detective and a member of the city’s oldest winter swimming club, the Coney Island Polar Bear Club. “He was known as the Great Joe Rollino, and he was great. You knew he was great just by standing next to him. He just had that humble confidence and strength. It shined.”

Our condolences to his friends and family.
