Inscription.  

His hands-on managerial style and tireless work ethic helped him build Circus Vargas into one of the great circuses of the modern era. Starting from scratch with three trucks and eight animals, by the time of his untimely death 20 years later the show had become a giant 3-ring extravaganza, showing before 2 million spectators annually.
