NFL legend Frank Gifford passed away unexpectedly at home in Connecticut. He was 84, and a week from his 85th birthday.
In addition to his famed football career, Gifford was also a successful broadcaster, who worked on “Monday Night Football” for over a decade.
Gifford is survived by his wife Kathie Lee Gifford, who hosts the second hour of the “Today” show with Hoda Kotb. They have been married since 1986 and have two children together, and Gifford has children from a previous marriage.
Here’s the official statement from the Gifford family:
Frank died suddenly this beautiful Sunday morning of natural causes at his Connecticut home. We rejoice in the extraordinary life he was privileged to live, and we feel grateful and blessed to have been loved by such an amazing human being. We ask that our privacy be respected at this difficult time and we thank you for your prayers.
Please keep the Gifford family in prayer during their time of bereavement.
