Steelers President Art Rooney II on Ambassador Daniel M. Rooney:
"It is a sad day for my family and me. My father meant so much to all of us, and so much to so many past and present members of the Steelers organization. He gave his heart and soul to the Steelers, the National Football League, and the City of Pittsburgh.
"We will celebrate his life and the many ways he left us in a better place."
