Professional wrestling career
Known by his midget wrestler persona "Sky Low Low", Gauthier stood just 42 inches tall and weighed 86 pounds. He began wrestling in the 1940s. He made his debut in the Canadian National Wrestling Alliance, and soon claimed the NWA World Midget Championship in Paris, France. He was managed for the bulk of his career by Jack Britton, father of Gino Brito.
One of his gimmicks was an open challenge to any other midget professional wrestlers to beat him in a two out of three falls match for $100. He could also stand on his head without using his hands to balance himself.
He had a longtime feud with Farmer Brooks.
During World War II, he worked in the tail of an aircraft bomber, fixing rivets. He liked fishing, golfing, and horseback riding. He died on November 6, 1998 from a heart attack. He was married at the time of his death. He was posthumously inducted into the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2002.
