Sad news for the Bengals family.
Marvin Lewis Sr., the father of Cincinnati Bengals head coach, Marvin Lewis, passed away Thursday afternoon at a Pittsburgh hospital, according to the team's website. He was 78 years old.
Lewis worked for 31 years on the Ohio, mainly at the Chenango Mill. But he was also known around his hometown of McDonald, Pa., for being a world-class handyman. After serving in the Army he returned to build the home where he lived the rest of his life while helping one neighbor build others.
