So sad anyway, but even worse to die alone like that. Had a wife and kids too. 


Tragic situation, but leaving behind a wife and kids makes it even worse.


You never think of a 38 year old dying like that. Especially when there's no apparent signs of foul play. I know that it does happen though.


I just hope everything checks out with the investigation and his cause of death isn't foul play. Praying for his wife and kids.

This one hurts - I've spent a little time with him, and my son was one of his coaches.

Even though he had a lot of business interests and activities, his wife once told us he seemed lost without football.  A lot of people will miss him.


Sadly, that's the case for many athletes who aren't ready for the end and transitioning to the next phase of their lives.


We always see the athletes who do successfully transition over, but we never see how many others struggle to try to most of the time.
