Tunch Ilkin, Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman and broadcaster has died from ALS. DDP hit for my Rolls Off The Tongue theme team if a UK obit surfaces. I also picked him in alt.obits deadpool.

As it's 10 years since the death of Al Davis, it's worth mentioning that his widow, Carol Davis (not sure if ever mentioned on this forum before) is still alive and around 90 now. Despite once being in coma due to a heart attack for three weeks in 1979, she is still going and since the death of Al has been the part-owner of Las Vegas Raiders with their son Mark Davis (1955-). Carol has been in a wheelchair for years, here's a recent picture:

Mark is currently 66.

Carl Madsen, who worked as an NFL on-field umpire and then as a replay official, died Sunday. He was 71.

The league confirmed Monday that Madsen, who had worked the Kansas City-Tennessee game, died on his way home.

Madsen, 71, was driving home to Weldon Spring, Missouri, when he had an apparent medical issue. Police were first called at 4:46 p.m. CT about an SUV stalled in a lane on Interstate 65 North with the driver unconscious.
