While deeply saddened by his passing, Bob Pons' family members take comfort in the fact that his final moments were filled with happiness.

According to the KJ, on Sunday evening, as he had done for over half a century, Bob Pons watched the Super Bowl with his wife.  Throughout the game, he cheered for his team and only briefly questioned their ability to pull off a win.  As the Patriots tied the game and it went into overtime, he even provided play-by-play for Mary, his wife of 48 years.

He passed away shortly after the Patriots beat the Falcons.

Growing up in the shadow of Boston, Bob is remembered as being a lifelong New England sports fan.
