I met George when he was living in my hometown of Sioux Falls, SD in 2001. I spoke with him about 2-3 times a week when he was working at Sunshine Food Store and he signed a football card for me and my son. After I was called back to active duty after 9/11 he wished me luck and told me to stay safe. My condolences to the family...R.I.P. George

Another piece of my childhood now part of the ages. At 52,some of my earliest sports memories was Namath-to-Sauer, Namath-to-Maynard, Namath handing off to Boozer, Namath handing off to Snell, Grantham with a big tackle,Sample picking one off, etc... All the above the reason I became, and will always be, a Jets fan. RIP, Mr. Sauer. You were a National Champ, a World Champ, and a champion off the field. Many condolences to your family.

George Sauer Sr. was my coach at the U S Naval Academy in 1948. That was a pleasure even tho our record was terrible. I met George Jr once when he returned to the Academy as a guest of my teammate, Tex Lawrence, for a reunion (about 40 yeaars later) of that team. We all appreciated his being there. RIP, George.

So very sorry for your loss. Alzheimer's is a cruel disease. George Sauer, Jr. was a fantastic wide receiver and I enjoyed watching him play along with the rest of that incredible NY Jets team. He leaves many good memories and will be missed.

As a Sigma Chi Fraternity brother of George in the early sixties at UT, I remember his calmness, courtesy, friendship and intelligence. Needless to say, he was a fine football player. My prayers are with all of the family. Ken Carr

So sorry to hear of George's passing. As a displaced Texan, I always cheer for Texas teams and Texas players. Heck, the whole 69 Jets team was comprised of Texans but for the QB. We'll miss you George. I was always a fan.

He and that Jets team are a wonderful memory from my teen years. I remember reading an interview with him in which he mentioned Albert Camus - definitely not the normal sports page topic! He seemed like a very special person, gifted in many ways.May he rest in peace.

A great athlete and role model. Thanks for the memories in the greatest Super Bowl played

Ms. Keifer, my condolences on the loss of your brother. I was 11 when he helped the Jets win that big game (my mother bought me a Jets 3-ring binder right after that!). Some of Mr. Sauer's concerns about professional football were prophetic, and I hope his death may bring his insights to a new and more receptive audience. My deep condolences at the death of a man who brought more joy than he probably realized. Thank you for caring for your brother, who (I pray) has found healing and peace in the hands of the One who made him.
