Today would have been Hall of Fame linebacker Junior Seau’s 47th birthday, and his daughter Sydney posted a heartfelt and heartbreaking tweet to honor her late father, who died in 2012 from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Seau was 43 at the time of his death and was found to have been suffering from CTE. His death defined the phrase “gone too soon” and though he isn’t here to celebrate his special day, there’s no doubt that he is still loved by many and the life he lived had a positive affect on millions.
Happy birthday, Junior. The world misses you.
