RIP: Wallace "Oni Wiki Wiki" Lam Ho

As reported by Jim Ross (courtesy of Bill Watts), Wallace "Oni Wiki Wiki" Lam Ho, 88, passed away on Monday, June 23.

To Watts, Lam Ho (who, when Watts first began wrestling, was booking Shreveport for Leroy McGuirk) will be remembered as a tough and nice guy. To many others, Lam Ho will be remembered for not only wrestling, but playing college football (he was a University of Hawaii All-American), in his bare feet.

No cause of death was given, but according to Watts, Lam Ho was said to be suffering from dementia, which could've played a role.

Services are set for Friday, June 27, at Tulsa's Rose Hill Funeral Home Chapel. Lam Ho, survived by two sons (Lee and Chilton), will be cremated.

On behalf of everyone at Canvas Chronicle, condolences to Lam Ho's family and close friends.
