Legendary Sale of the Century champion Cary Young has died at the age of 83.
Young's family said the quiz king passed away after a long battle with Alzheimer's.
The family paid tribute to Young in a statement shared with the Herald Sun.
"People just had this affection for him because he was just this very average person. He wasn't an academic or professional," his daughter Michelle said.
"He was working in an abattoir when he went on the show – he saw an opportunity to make a better life for his family."
Young became a household name after he won more than 60 episodes of the program.
