S.D. Jones 1945 - 2008
Conrad Efraim, known to wrestling fans as Special Delivery Jones, passed away on Sunday in Antigua due to complications from a stroke he suffered on Wednesday. He was 63 years old.
Special Delivery Jones was without a doubt the most famous of all the jobbers the WWE used to feature in the '80s. While he would sometimes get a win and would occasionally partner up with the popular wrestlers of the era, he would often lose his televised matches in relatively competitive fashion. As a competitor in the first WrestleMania, he was demolished by King Kong Bundy in a matter of seconds. Despite his poor won-loss record, LJN produced a Special Delivery Jones action figure in the '80s.
Slam Sports has written a touching obituary for SD Jones and have offered to pass on any condolences to his widow, Kay.
Last week, Leah Maivia passed away at the age of 81. She was the widow of WWE Hall-of-Famer Peter Maivia and the grandmother of Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. After the death of her husband in 1982, Leah ran NWA Polynesian Pro Wrestling, based out of Hawaii, until 1988.
