Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen passed away at the age of 75 after a battle with Alzheimer’s on Thursday night.

Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt issued a statement on Friday:

HUNT: “My family and I are saddened by the loss of Pat Bowlen, and our hearts are with the Bowlen family and the entire Denver Broncos organization during this difficult time. A tremendous competitor, Pat built a culture of success in Denver, and his leadership turned the Broncos into one of the model franchises in the National Football League. As Chairman of the Broadcast Committee, Pat helped expand the audience for America’s Game and prepare our league for a changing media landscape. Beyond the strong passion he had for his football team, he cared deeply about his community, and he left an indelible mark on his beloved city of Denver. Our heartfelt condolences go out to Annabel, his children and the entire Broncos family.”
