He continued: "I remember when dad was 90 and he had a guy that he worked out with 30 years, Mike. So I went to see dad one day and I go, 'Dad, what's wrong? You don't look good.' He said, 'Mike died.' 'Oh dad, I'm so sorry. Mike died... how old was Mike? "He said, '94.' So his trainer was 94-year-old when he was 90."
