Andy Haman, a professional bodybuilder based out of Colorado, passed away on March 20th, 2021 at the age of 54. Haman’s son, Sam Haman, confirmed the news of his father’s passing in a post on Facebook.
“RIP: Anthony Joesph Haman/Dad/Mr.Incredible. We love you so much and you will be in our thoughts forever! No one was as strong, kind, silly, goofball wonderful person as you. Don’t worry about mom and the girls I’ll take care of them, just the way you did and taught me. #crazyfunalways”
Haman was born on August 16, 1966 in Iowa City, Iowa. He would compete as a wrestler in high school before beginning his journey into bodybuilding. Haman first made headlines in the bodybuilding scene in 2006 when he won the super-heavyweight class of the Colorado State Championships. He would earn IFBB Professional League status the following year thanks to his super-heavyweight and overall victories at the 2007 NPC Masters Nationals contest.
His highest placing as an Open competitor came at the 2009 Orlando Pro where he placed 13th. His last appearance onstage came at the 2010 Phoenix Pro, where he finished tied for 16th. He retired after that season to focus on raising his family and his career away from the stage.

Haman was considered by many fans to be one of the more entertaining personalities in the sport of bodybuilding. He may be best known for his ads and appearances on behalf of his sponsors at expos and trade shows. Haman and his family would occasionally appear as “The Incredibles” at these events and on social media.

Haman was most proud of being a father, and his children have followed in his strength sport footsteps. His son, Sam, won the classic physique division of the 2018 Teen Nationals. His daughter, Ruby, has competed in Olympic weightlifting. In 2017, she was named to the USA Weightlifting Summer Universiade Team in the 75 kg category.
