People have posted this in the comments of a couple threads and I thought it was worth it's own front page post. The father of former 49ers QB Shaun Hill passed away this past Saturday after an accidental fall. Hill and his father were working on a barn at Shaun's home in Missouri when the elder Hill fell. He was taken to a hospital but was later pronounced dead.
In reading over Pride of Detroit's post I had forgotten that Shaun was quarterback on a high school team coached by his dad at one point. Shaun's dad also coached him in basketball and it sounds like they had an incredibly close relationship. Any death is tough, but an unexpected and sudden death can be as shocking as anything.
Our thoughts go out to Shaun Hill and his family.
