So sorry to hear of Mr Wilson's passing. I will forever be in his debt for making NFL Football possible in my beloved hometown. He gave us a reason to cheer, hope and sometimes groan, but I will remember the excitement of those great seasons for the rest of my life. I am only sorry I did not get a chance to shake his hand and thank him in person. Rest in peace Mr. Wilson

To the Entire Family of Mr. Ralph C. Wilson,

My wife and I as so saddened to learn of Mr Wilson's passing this past Tuesday. That moment in time will forever etched in my mind.

As a high school freshman in Buffalo back in 1963 I met Ralph and Coach Saban out on the field following the last game of the season as the team lost. That was when fans were able to walk out on the field! (Maybe by fans storming on to the field, but I got to meet him and talk with him.)

Had they won, the next week we would have been in the AFL Championship Game. But that was not to be.

I had the chance to ask Mr. Wilson, "What about next year?" He said to me "Next Year were going to win the Championship." He was right!

I have never forgotten that comment to this day.

I also had the opportunity to be a member of the University of Buffalo Marching Band and be a part of the wonderful opportunity of performing the pre-game and half time shows at the old "Rock Pile" as fans often referred to it.

The greatest honor however, was becoming a High School Band Director and having the opportunity to have my students from Kenmore West be a part of the final AFL/NFL game there. What a wet, cold, December 10,1972. And the grass was history as the player's cleats had left major potholes on that field.

Only to have that experience topped by several more appearances at the "The Ralph." These too, were so special, memorable moments in the lives of these students and continues to live on after all these years.

I see former students every now and then and they have never forgotten the experiences that became reality due Mr. Wilson's team being here. Wow, What an experience he provided to our students.

These are a few of the fond experiences that I owe and wish to pay "Thanks" to Mr. Wilson's legacy. He provided opportunities to thousands with his franchise in Buffalo and his belief in our community.

I pray for God's Peace be upon the entire family and Bill's Organization. He will be greatly missed and will never be forgotten.

I wish Mr. Wilson's family all the best, and hope they can take comfort knowing how much of an impact mr. Wilson had, and the legacy he leaves behind. He had a huge impact on the lives of more people then they could ever know. He had a huge impact of who I am, as well as who my children are. It takes a special person to be a Bill's fan, and an even greater one to be the father of such a great team, legacy and tradiotn. Rest in Peace Mr. Wilson. You will always be in our hearts, and never far from our minds.

Ralph Wilson was truly a good man; he was a sound businessman that made the AFL succeed as a foundling league in the 1960's. He loaned money to both the Oakland and New England owners when their teams struggled financially prior to the 1970 Merger with the NFL. All football fans should salute him. Ralph was someone that you could talk to like you would a next door neighbor. He loved football with a passion. He also was a WWII veteran. May his soul rest in peace.
