Art was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2022 and officially inducted in the summer.
“Art McNally was an extraordinary man, the epitome of integrity and class,” commissioner Roger Goodell said Monday. “Throughout his distinguished officiating career, he earned the eternal respect of the entire football community. Fittingly, he was the first game official enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio. But more importantly, he was a Hall of Fame person in absolutely every way.”
“Our thoughts go out to his wife, Sharon, his children Marybeth, Tom, and Michael, and his grandchildren.”
