City of Glendale statement on passing of Cardinals owner Bill Bidwill


City of Glendale statement on Bill Bidwill, who died at 88 Wednesday:

Few individuals have had such a profound impact on the State of Arizona and the city of Glendale as Bill Bidwill. He stood as a remarkable example of selflessness and humility in his service to our nation as part of the U.S. Navy, in his dedication to his faith and family and in his unheralded contributions to his community and those in need.

His love of football and the Arizona Cardinals left an irreplaceable mark on our city when he provided the leadership and support for a new NFL stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Every mention of Glendale during nationally and internationally televised events are because of the legacy of Mr. Bidwill.

We join in celebrating the remarkable life of Bill Bidwill and send our deepest condolences to the Bidwill family.
