Frank Gifford, pro football Hall of Famer and husband to NBC’s “Today” host, Kathie Lee Gifford, has passed away at the age of 84.
In 1956, Gifford took the New York Giants to a league championship. In that same year, he was named the NFL’s Most Valuable Player.
It is with the deepest sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved husband, father and friend, Frank Gifford. 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.
