To get to know him not just as the owner of the team but as an individual and I got to hear him through his voice. I enjoyed that.”NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said in a release: ​”Bill Bidwill was part of the NFL family his entire life, starting from his days as a ball boy through his time as an owner. Although never one to seek the spotlight, Bill had an incredible sense of humor and he made extraordinary contributions to the NFL. Bill’s vision brought the Cardinals, the NFL and multiple Super Bowls to Arizona. He was a leader in embracing diversity and employed the first African American female executive, and the first African American general manager and head coach tandem. We extend our condolences to Bill’s family and the Cardinals organization, which along with his faith, meant so much to him.” Bidwill is survived by his five children — Bill Jr., Michael, Nicole, Patrick and Tim — and 10 grandchildren and one great-grandchild. His wife Nancy died in 2016. Cardinals owner Bill Bidwill, whose life spanned nearly the entire existence of the franchise his family has owned for nearly nine decades, died Wednesday at 88. Bidwill was born in 1931, a year before his father Charles agreed to buy the Chicago-based NFL team for $50,000. He began working for the franchise full-time in 1960, the year it moved to St. Louis, and gained sole ownership 12 years later before relocating the team to Arizona in 1988.  Archie Manning says grandson is better than Eli, Peyton It is with great sadness that we share the news that our owner, Bill Bidwill, has passed away today at the age of 88. pic.twitter.com/xgNiGvShiF— Arizona Cardinals (@AZCardinals) October 2, 2019“Our dad passed away today the same way he lived his life: peacefully, with grace, dignity and surrounded by family and loved ones,” Cardinals President Michael Bidwill said in a statement. “We are overwhelmed by the support our family has received, not only now but throughout the latest chapter of his life.
