    "Olympic medal-winning wrestler Kenneth Richmond, who became a screen icon as the man who banged the gong for J. Arthur Rank films, has died at his home in Christchurch at the age of 80...But he gave up the bright lights and sporting life to become a Jehovah's Witness in 1967 and served as a missionary in Malta and later as a district overseer travelling widely in the U.K....The funeral for Mr. Richmond, who is survived by a step-daughter, is expected to be held at the Christchurch Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses in Purewell on Friday."
