Baltimore Colts legend and World War II veteran Gino Marchetti dies at 93

Gino Marchetti, the Pro Football Hall of Famer and rugged former Baltimore Colts defensive end, has passed away at the age of 93.

Although a cause of death has not been specified, the legendary pass rusher was with his wife of 41 years when he died at Paoli Hospital in Paoli, Pennsylvania on Tuesday.

'I kissed him and he knew me and smiled,' Joan Marchetti told the Baltimore Sun. 'That was Gino's way of saying goodbye.'

My brother and I worked at Gino's restaurant near Baltimore. He was a great guy. And one heck of a DE!
