The father of a Los Angeles Rams player who reportedly had $1.2 million worth stolen from his bank account by hackers has died.
The man, who was identified by his family as James Ruggles, was 89.
“James was an extraordinary human being,” his daughter, Amy Ruggle, told the Associated Press.
“He was a generous person who had a great sense of humour and a great heart for all people.”
I know that people who know James will be deeply saddened by his passing.
“He was an amazing man.
We were all so fortunate to have met him.”
Mr Ruggls’ daughter said he suffered from dementia and died of complications after he suffered cardiac arrest on July 18.
