Default RIP Mr. Bettis

Johnnie Bettis Has Died


(KDKA) DETROIT The father of former Steelers Running Back Jerome Bettis has died.

According to a spokesman for the former Steeler, Johnnie Bettis suffered a heart attack while he was driving in suburban Detroit late this afternoon.

Bettis was found slumped over the wheel of his car.

No one else was in the car with him at the time; and the spokesperson says Bettis was not involved in an accident.

Bettis had no history of heart problems; and the spokesman says his death was completely unexpected.

At least he got to see his son win that ring. I'm sure he died a happy and proud man. RIP Mr. Bettis and my thoughts and prayers to the Bettis family.

Not that I know of SW. I think it's a little too soon. If I hear or read anything I will let you know in this thread.

thats a bummer for jerome and his family. you know if he were playing this weekend he would come out and rush for 200 yds and plow over anything in his way! im glad we got to see the hundereds of shots of jeromes parents in the stands at the superbowl. im glad jerome, his parents, and being the hometown hero were a bigger story than the seahawks.

rip jeromes pop.
