Remembering MMA Fighter Kimbo Slice

On June 6, 2016, Kimbo Slice died of heart failure at the age of 42. A year later Rosemary Clarke, Slice’s mother, reflects on her time spent with him and all the joy that he gave her throughout his life.

At the time of his death, Slice was arranging a transport to the Cleveland Clinic, where he hoped to undergo a heart transplant. Although the sudden death of Slice was shocking to most, Slice was taking medication for high blood pressure for years.

Clarke and other family and friends shared their stories and memories of Slice as if he was still alive today.

His mother said, “Sometimes, it feels¬†like he hasn’t been away, because of his presence. His spirit will always be amongst me because I had a strong love for him and he had a strong love for me.”
