Finally have an account so i can access the message boards.
I am trying to locate any old videos of my uncle Len Miller when he wrestled with the Funk brothers and was a wrestling referee too.  It would have been between 1963-1965 I think.  
I have looked through you tube videos but have had no success.  I would much appreciate any help.  I was 4 years old when he wrestled and refereed and would like to find something.  Len passed away last year, survived by his wife and 2 kids.  
He wrestled and refereed as Len and Leonard Miller.  He lived in Amarillo, Texas.  
Thanks to anyone who might find something.

Hi Doug, welcome to the board. From what I know there isn't a lot (if any) of footage circulating from Amarillo in that time frame (or Amarillo footage in general). I will check through my collection to see if he pops up anyplace.

If anyone else has any idea what other places he may have wrestled or refereed chime in here and I can check those spots too.

Here's what we dug up in the Clawmaster forum:

https://sportsandwrestling.mywowbb.com/forum2/49715.html

The total known surviving footage from the Amarillo territory totals less than three hours, and all of it is from the later years of the group. Never say never, but I think the chances of any footage from the early 60s surfacing is very close to zero. I can't speak for his time in Central States, but I think the chances are very slim. Sorry we can't be more positive!
