RIP, Stan Musial

As a former St. Louis resident and, having shaken hands with him on one occasion where I found him to be a complete gentleman, I was sorry to read of the passing of Stan Musial this evening. He was 92. He passed away at his home under hospice care. From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch: 

Musial’s family members who did not live here had gathered in the last day when Musial’s health had deteriorated. A family spokesman made the announcement.
Musial, who turned 92 in November, has been in declining health for the last several years, including being afflicted with Alzheimer’s disease. Lillian Musial, his wife of more than 70 years, had died last May 4.
Considered the greatest Cardinal of them all, Musial also likely was the most popular Cardinal of them all, continuing to make his home in St. Louis after his retirement in 1963.
