Legendary broadcaster Gil Santos passes away at the age of 78

Legendary Patriots broadcaster Gil Santos passed away today on his birthday at the age of 78.

The long-time voice of the Pats served in the booth for a total of 36 years, mostly alongside former Patriots kicker Gino Cappelletti. Santos also served as the morning sports anchor for WBZ-TV.

Santos was in the booth for 743 Patriots games, 15 playoff runs and 6 Super Bowls. He was inducted into the Patriots Hall of Fame in 2013, only the second non-player to earn that honor. 

Gil Santos was born in Acushnet and spent most of his adult life living in the town of Raynham.
