Bob Carney was a huge fan of the Denver Broncos. He was a season ticket holder since 1965 and kept pages of notes about the team he loved.
The lifetime Broncos fan invited his daughter, Cindy Hoffman, to accompany him to Santa Clara, California. They arrived in the Bay Area two days before the big game.
Unfortunately, Carney didn't make it to Levi's Stadium that Sunday. The 73 year old collapsed hours after arriving in California. Carney suffered a pulmonary embolism and passed away.
As a hospice nurse, Cindy was as ready as she could be. Dealing with the death of her father, Cindy did what her father would've done -- she went to the game with a friend.
