Erie County Comptroller Stefan I. Mychajliw Statement on the Passing of Ralph C. Wilson

(Buffalo) – “I was sad to learn of Mr. Wilson’s passing this afternoon.  Everyone in Buffalo is a Bills fan, but Buffalo itself had no greater fan than Ralph Wilson.  Born and raised in the City of Buffalo, I have been a Bills fan my entire life.  Some of my greatest memories as a child were watching games with my family.” 

“As an adult, I grew a greater appreciation for the Bills as an organization, not just an NFL team.  Through Mr. Wilson’s leadership, they remained committed to this area, even when many other teams moved around to more lucrative communities.  At this time, my thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Wilson’s family and the Bills organization.”
