    Guy brought a lot of entertainment to me. I guess God needed a film editor.

    I had no idea he had brain cancer or that he was that old. I thought he was in his 50s. I know his dad started what became NFL Films. Hopefully they keep going because I love their stuff.

    I am 99% sure they will. I mean it is probably a billion $$$ business.

    There have been a lot of famous people right around that age eating it. I guess that is the age a lot of people die, but the thing is, damn am I getting close to it.

    RIP bro. I remember watching one of those bits on NFL Films from back in the 60's or 70's where the coach kept calling the ref a goddamn polack. Fucking hilarious.

    The little tribute segment they just showed going into commercial was nice. Old film camera shuts off, the lights in the stadium go out then the camera pans up into the night sky.

    Missed this while on vacation. RIP Steve.

    I always liked NFL films specials. They started in Philly
    and were voiced for a while by long time Phillies announcer
    Harry Kalas til he passed. NFL films will miss them both.

    Editor, Director, Writer, Producer, Cinematographer. He won individual Emmys in each category (40 t0tal).

    And he ran a business on top of that. The guy knew what the fuck he was doing and more.

    And he wrote "The Autumn Wind." That's legend status right there.
