We all knew him as Big Van Vader, but to his family he was Leon White. Today, his son broke the news that his father had passed away. Vader, as he was known to fans, was 63 years old, and had been dealing with some health issues over the last few years. A couple of years ago, he revealed that he was suffering from congestive heart failure and that he would likely have two more years to live. Even though he had medical issues, he continued wrestling. But two years ago in Japan, he ended up collapsing in the ring.
