Lisa Anne Dawson is best known for being the daughter of Len Dawson, an American football quarterback who played in the NFL and AFL for 19 seasons with his main team being the Kansas City Chiefs. Dawson is reported to have passed away on August 12, 2022, at the age of 87.
Lisa Anne Dawson’s Parents
Lisa Ann is the only daughter of Len Dawson with his first wife, Jacqueline Puzder. Her parents were high school sweethearts and were married in 1954. Jacqueline passed away in 1978 due to cancer-related complications. They are two children in the family, Lisa and her brother Len Dawson, Jr.
Dawson’s children do not seem to have followed in their father’s footsteps of being sports persons. They maintained a low profile despite all the publicity that Dawson received.
After the death of Dawson’s first wife, he went on to marry Linda Louise whom he remained married until his death in 2022. It is not clear when the two celebrated their marriage but they seem to have had quite a good bond. Linda was beside her husband at the time of his death when he was taken to hospice care at the University of Kansas Medical Center just days prior to his death.
Did Linda Linda Louise and Len Dawson
Linda and Dawson did not have any children and it is not clear when the two celebrated their marriage. It is also not clear whether Linda’s marriage to Dawson was her first marriage. She kept a low profile, unlike Dawson’s first wife.
Len Dawson Death & Cause
On August 12, 2022, Dawson’s family announced that he had entered hospice care at the University of Kansas Medical Center. He died on August 24, at the age of 87.
Confirming his death, Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt said he was “heartbroken” about Dawson’s death.
“Len Dawson is synonymous with the Kansas City Chiefs. Len embraced and came to embody Kansas City and the people that call it home. You would be hard-pressed to find a player who had a bigger impact in shaping the organization as we know it today than Len Dawson did,” Hunt said in a statement.
“I admired Len my entire life — first as a Hall of Fame player on the field, and later as he transitioned into a successful broadcasting career. Throughout his remarkable career, Len made it a priority to give back to the community that he loved. The franchise has lost a true legend. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Linda and his family.”
RIP to the legend Len Dawson. The legacy and impact you made on Kansas City will live on forever. Prayers to his family 🙏🏽🙏🏽 pic.twitter.com/AKMhxoUFYH
