Cause of Mark Bricklin‘s death…

Mark Bricklin, the editor in chief of Prevention Magazine  passed away suddenly over the weekend at his home. He died after suffering from a brief illness leaving family members, loved ones and friends in great grief and fear.

According to our source, no cause of his death has been declared as investigation is still on-going at the time of gathering this report but we gathered that he was ill briefly before he died.

Who Was Mark Bricklin ?

Mark was the editor in chief of Prevention, as well as the editorial director and VP of other products, including Men’s Health which he created. He was one of the innovators behind the health movement.

And while he sold millions of magazines as well as books, he also smoked Marlboro Reds, drank whiskey and shot bullets from handguns into phone books (I can attest to participating in all three behaviors with him).

He was an avid race walker — which causes its participants to swing their hips awkwardly like they’re imitating Jude Law from “The Road to Perdition.” But he was first and foremost, an oddball. He was analytical, logical and rational, but then go off and launch magazines called “Pets, Part of the Family.” Which in reality, came and went before its time.

Bricklin understood human nature, the importance of incentives, and how life was meaningless without a good time. And man did we have a good time.” Greg Gutfeld reported.

Bricklin was the most honest editor, and the people he mentored — like Greg Gutfeld, or Mike Lafavore or Mark Golin — picked it up. Bricklin and Lafavore would cross out entire blocks of your writing and it would crush you. Then, the next page they would write “HAH” next to a line, and you’d be back on course feeling awesome. Golin was more diplomatic — he would just say, “It sucks.” And then he would rewrite the entire article out loud talking to you“.

Bricklin taught you to write tight and fast, and trim everything that didn’t matter. He had a simple test — he called it “the hot spot.”

Bricklin was a good man, an honorable man, and a fair man. He will be sorely missed. We thank him for his many services to our community.

We pray that God grants those who are affected by this death the fortitude to carry on. Losing a beloved one is one of the most difficult feelings on earth. Our thoughts and prayers are with all the family members and friends.
