Shawn Springs' father Ron passes away

Just saw this on twitter from Kelli Johnson

"Kelli Johnson
My thoughts & prayers go out to Shawn Springs & his family... After the passing of Ron Springs, 54, who's been in a coma the past 3.5 yrs"

Prayers out to the Springs family.

Re: Shawn Springs' father Ron passes away

Read my custom user title and you'd have seen it over an hour ago

But I disgress, tragic loss. I know the Springs family had been suffering a lot over the past several years. And as much as some may say well he's not suffering anymore, it's still difficult for everyone.

Thoughts and prayers with the Springs

Tough, tough, loss, especially considering how avoidable it could have been.

RIP, Ron Springs.

Re: Shawn Springs' father Ron passes away

RIP Ron Springs & all the best to the Springs family as they remember him.

I grew up w/some of his cousins, he's from my hometown - Williamsburg, Va. Although Lawrence Taylor is also from Williamsburg, only Ron Springs has a road named after him. My high school coach coached him a decade + earlier & always spoke fondly of him.

I remember that last Woody Hayes OSU game. Ron was on that team as I recall. It never bothered me that he was a cowboy, was just proud that he came from my hometown. When Shawn Springs came to the Skins it was kinda fitting, since Shawn was also born in Williamsburg I believe, then grew up in northern va. in Skins country.
