According to his obituary in the Daily Telegraph; Roger LaVern experienced a fair amount of highs and lows during his 75 years that reportedly included …

… having a philandering father who was sentenced to be hanged for murdering his mistress
… racking up some 3,500 sexual conquests on his own behalf
… during the course of which he was married 9 times
… being one-time marathon piano playing world record holder
… known throughout Mexico of the 1970s as El Lobo Plateado (“The Silver Wolf”)
