It was an honor and a pleasure to have him, his family and the Arizona Cardinals as part of our Tempe, and greater Phoenix, community. Our most sincere condolences are extended to immediate and extended family. We are thankful for having known him and are grateful for his many generous contributions to Arizona.”
