“Our dad passed away today the same way he lived his life: peacefully, with grace, dignity and surrounded by family and loved ones,”
“Above all else, we will remember him as a man devoted to the three central pillars of his life – his immense faith, his love for his family and his life-long passion for the Cardinals and the sport of football.”Cardinals President Michael Bidwill said in a statement to the Arizona Cardinals.
Bidwill is survived by five children, ten grandchildren and one great grandchild.
The Cardinals play the Cincinnati Bengals this Sunday, October 6.
