Former Broncos, Packers and Ravens Tight End Mitchell Henry has passed away from Leukemia

Here's the family's statement on his passing.

It is with great sadness that I share the following text from Lesley Henry :

Mitchell passed away with leukemia this morning at 3 am. Madison, Lesley, Ben and myself were by his side. We are so proud of Mitchell's fight with this terrible disease , proud of how he lived his life for the past 24 years, but most of all proud of his faith and acceptance of Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.

Ben is flying back today and the rest of us including Jack will spend a couple of days driving back home. We are emotionally and physically exhausted. We ask respect for our privacy until we arrive back home. We will welcome calls and text at that time. We love and appreciate each and everyone's support for Mitchell and all if his extended family over the last 7 months. Please pray for all of our safe travels back home and the difficult days for our family that are still ahead. Feel free to forward this along.

Love The Henry's
