    His size intimidated about everybody he walked by.
    He needed to custom order everything he wore.
    He constantly bumped his head on ceilings and doorways.
    He suffered from an overactive pituitary gland, which was incurable at the time.
    He was a quiet, gentle giant who never wanted to be known as a freak.
    He had a positive outlook on life despite his disability.
    He developed an infection in his leg as result of his height and died a week later.
    He was buried under concrete for fears his body would be subjected to medical research.
