Goodbye, HG (John Wilson) - ChiefsChick23 - 07-06-2020

John's wife Rosie texted us today that John, who's been on a ventilator for several weeks, is being taken off of it and is not expected to survive more than a few hours later.  She's asked all of us to deck out in our Chiefs gear today (7/6/20) in his memory.

I wish you peace, my friend, and I'm so glad I got to witness our Beloved Chiefs win the Super Bowl with you. One of the happiest days of my life.

As I know of funeral arrangements, I'll let y'all know.

I'm wearing Chiefs gear for the entire foreseeable future, actually. I owe John a lot.

Oh no. That's terrible. Take care, HG. We'll miss you.

Oh no! That's terrible. Im so sorry to hear that. So glad he got to see the chiefs win it all beforehand. This place won't be the same without him.

I am already missing John. The dude was a blast and just plain all around good guy. I can't remember how many strangers accidentally waltzed up to our tailgate and before you know it they're being fed delicious tailgate and told inappropriate Raiders jokes.

I'm going to do my best to not drag my head around that first game back, but I know this is going to hurt all over again then. RIP, buddy.

I am truly happy that I got to meet HG in person. He welcomed me and made the day a memorable experience. My condolences to Rosie and the rest of their family. RIP HG.

Do we know what happened. Why was he in the hospital on a ventilator?

He had a non-cancerous mass in his chest. I don't know all the details, but I know it wasn't cancer or Covid.
