It’s always devastating to lose someone you love, but when that someone is a mere 26 years old and made a living in the world of fitness, it’s shocking as well. The WWE’s Dana Brooke is the picture of strength and grace as she mourns the unexpected passing of her boyfriend, bodybuilder Dallas McCarver.
According to the Huffington Post, Dallas passed away on August 22 at the age of 26 after apparently choking on food. Their report states he was found face down on the kitchen floor with food blocking his throat.
Dana took to social media to share the news with both her fans and fans of Dallas, and express her love and grief.
“Aug 22 the lord received another angel, who happens to be my LIFE — My Dallas, the one who only understood me,” she writes. “I can speak on the behalf of his family — the love and support you all are showing for him and us is overwhelming!!” She went on to say, “Dallas was an exceptional body builder, but I didn’t see him for that … I saw him for him and his heart!! He is the best individual I have ever met — my ying to my yang … finished my sentences and knew what I was thinking before I’d say it … you were my life , you are my life, I still smell you and feel your presence. Never leave my side.“
