When did Frank Gifford die? Who is Cassidy Gifford and why dad tribute making headlines?

Frank Gifford’s death is being mourned by his fans and family. One of the best American football players that the country has ever produced and one of the finest sportscasters, he passed this past Sunday. He was 84.

The unforgettable personality, Frank Gifford, was a giant in truest sense and despite retiring from New York Giants more than fifty years ago, he was still thought to be the best that the team has produced. The way everyone lined up to pay his or her tribute to the legend shows as to how popular he was.

His wife who spent more than twenty nine years with him as his wife paid glowing tribute to him. Notwithstanding the fact that he was around twenty-five years her senior, the two had a great married life. A statement released by his family said, “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.”frank gifford

In the meantime a report in the RadarOnline said that all necessary preparations for his funeral are complete.

An unnamed family source was quoted by entertainment blog as saying, “The Gifford family has decided to have a very private funeral”. Though the final dates were still to be released, the Radar Online report quoted the same source as further saying, “Frank is going to be buried in a family plot that is near their home in Connecticut so that the family can visit him whenever they’d like…Kathie Lee is actually in relatively good spirits right now and everyone is really surprised at how well she is taking this”.

In the meantime his daughter Cassidy Gifford’s tribute to her father seems to be very heartening. Like her mother, Kathie Lee, the 22-year-old actress acknowledged how incredible it was that her father, who was 84, had such a storied life. While paying tribute to her legendary father Cassidy said, “Very few people are blessed enough to call their father a legend, and an even smaller number are able to share that notion with the rest of the world…Today of all days I can genuinely say I am humbled by the outpour of love and support my family has received.”

While talking about her 84-year old father who had many affairs in his eventful life his daughter said, “Yesterday, I lost my best friend…His kindness was infectious, and his grace, beyond compare… And despite the worldly passing of an incredible man, I undoubtedly know heaven gained one stud of an angel” she went on to add. She ended her tribute with the following words, “Philippians 4:13 has never rung so true. You were an unparalleled Giant in all sense of the word, Dad.. So keep doin’ you up there, because no one does it better, and no one ever will”.
