Gary Brown Cause of Death
Gary Brown, Wisconsin’s running backs coach during the 2021 season, died Sunday night, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel’s Jeff Potrykus.
The news was confirmed by The Fort Worth Star-Telegram’s Clarence Hill Jr. He was 52 years old.
Brown died in his hometown of Williamsport, Pa. and was in hospice for the last several weeks, according to Hill. His cause of death is unknown.
He dealt with several health issues throughout his life, including being diagnosed with cancer twice.
In his early 40s, cancer was discovered in his colon and liver, but he was given “a clean bill of health” after chemotherapy treatments, per Potrykus.
His second bout with cancer came after the 2019 season when doctors found a malignant tumor near Brown’s pancreas.
