Don Meredith, a Mount Vernon native who grew into one of the most recognizable figures of the early Dallas Cowboys and an original member of ABC's “Monday Night Football” broadcast team, died Sunday. He was 72.
Meredith's wife, Susan, told The Associated Press on Monday her husband died in Santa Fe after suffering a brain hemorrhage and lapsing into a coma. She says a private graveside ceremony is being planned and that family members were traveling to Santa Fe.
“He was the best there was,” she said, describing him as kind, warm and funny. "We lost a good one."
