ProServ client Ashe was “just a fantastic human being,” Benton said.
Like the others, “mine’s not even close, it’s Arthur Ashe,” Donald Dell said. “Michael Jordan for 10 years was exciting, charismatic and helped us take off with basketball. But as a human being, it was clearly Arthur. America lost a great friend and a great person when it lost Arthur.”
Added Frank Craighill, “Arthur was good friend of all of ours and a unique human being. … That original group of Arthur, Stan [Smith], Bobby Lutz and Charlie Pasarell were a fabulous group of athletes — all of whom accepted the responsibility of their roles and who did all the right things. The latter group of athletes changed.”
