Dwight Clark, at the age of 61, has passed away from his battle with ALS. It had been announced last March that Dwight had been diagnosed with ALS.
I’m trying to sit here and put together a professional statement about Dwight but I simply can’t do that. Dwight was such an amazing figure in 49ers history. Made famous for “The Catch”, Dwight was part of what sent the 49ers into one of the greatest dynasties of all time. The two-time Super Bowl champion was so kind in his interviews, so nice to fans. When you think of the San Francisco 49ers Dwight will always be right there at the top. ALS is an awful disease and shows no mercy. Losing Dwight Clark to the disease is heart breaking. What is important is to remember him for the amazing individual he was. A father of three, a husband, and a San Francisco 49er. Thank you for the amazing memories that will lIve with us fans, and this team, forever.
We here at 49ersHub offer our sincerest condolences to the Clark family, the 49ers organization, and the fans.
