Bears VP Tim McCaskey Dead At Age 65

Chicago, IL–(ENEWSPF)–

From the Sun-Times:

Bears vice president Tim McCaskey died Sunday after a 17-month battle with cancer, his family announced. He was 65.

The second-oldest of Ed and Virginia McCaskey’s 11 children, he was so well-regarded by his grandfather, late Bears founder George Halas, that he was sent to break the news to him that his son George Jr. — nicknamed “Mugs” — had passed away unexpectedly in 1979.
