San Francisco 49ers limited partner, Franklin Mieuli, passed away Sunday from natural causes after having been hospitalized recently. The 89-year old San Jose native’s longtime interest and love for sports sparked his future involvement in the professional sports teams that brought him five Super Bowl championship rings with the 49ers and one NBA World Championship as the former owner of the Golden State Warriors. “Franklin was unique,” said 49ers Owner Dr. John York. “He had his own style and thought process, as well as a tremendous enthusiasm for sports. He attended every 49ers game and cheered with all his heart. The 49ers organization is saddened by his passing, but grateful for having been able to experience his personality and support.” 49ers President and CEO Jed York added: “I have a lot of respect for Mr. Miueli. He meant so much to Bay Area sports, in particular the 49ers family, and he will certainly be remembered for his contributions. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends during this tough time.”
