It is with profound sadness that we report the passing of Kansas City Chiefs Hall of Famer, Ed Budde. Aged 83, Budde died of natural causes, as reported by his family to FOX4 on Tuesday.
Budde’s list of awards is impressive. He was a key factor in the Chiefs’ Super Bowl IV victory and contributed to two AFL championships. His skill and dedication earned him a first-team All-AFL selection in 1966.
In total, Budde competed in 177 career matches, demonstrating his tenacity and commitment to the sport. The highlights of his career reflect not only his personal achievements but also his contribution to the Chiefs legacy.
His passing was confirmed by former Kansas City DE David Lindstrom, who expressed sadness at his colleague’s passing. Ed Budde’s legacy extends far beyond his impressive career stats and the Kansas City Chiefs Hall of Fame. He was not only a teammate but also a mentor and friend to many in the soccer community.
As we mourn the loss of this football great, we also honor his contributions to the sport. His dedication, skills and passion for football have touched many lives and will continue to inspire future generations of athletes.
Our deepest condolences go out to his family, friends and all those mourning his loss. The spirit of Ed Budde will live on through the memories shared by those who knew him and through his lasting impact on the sport he loved.
