Jerry Romig, who, as the voice of the New Orleans Saints, led football fans through 44 years of exasperating losses and exhilarating victories, died Wednesday (Dec. 23) at his River Ridge home. He was 86.

Although Mr. Romig's work as the play-by-play announcer for the Saints' home games was the activity for which he was best known, the lifelong New Orleanian led a varied life that included stints as a newspaper sports reporter while in his teens; an executive at two television stations; a fundraiser for the New Orleans Archdiocese; and the spokesman for Charity Hospital.

In recognition of his contributions to the community, the Institute for Human Understanding named him one of its 10 Outstanding Persons in 1988.

He was a Saints' icon. Sincere condolences to his family; may he rest in peace.

Many of you may remember this one:
