Hall of Fame safety and longtime Arizona Cardinals executive Larry Wilson passed away on Thursday night at the age of 82, the team announced.
“The game lost a true legend with the passing of Pro Football Hall of Famer Larry Wilson,” said Hall of Fame president & CEO David Baker. “He was not only one of the greatest to ever play the game, but one of the nicest and kindest men I have ever met. The entire Pro Football Hall of Fame family mourns the passing of Larry. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Nancy, and their entire family. We will not only forever keep his legacy alive as a football player, but also for the great man he was. The Hall of Fame flag will fly at half-staff until he is laid to rest.”
