Former Green Bay Packer Max McGee died late Saturday afternoon following an accident at his home in Deephaven, MN.
Police were called to his home around 5:20 p.m. on a report of an unconscious man who had fallen off the roof.
Emergency crews arrived and performed CPR on McGee but their efforts were not successful and he was pronounced dead.
Family members say McGee was blowing leaves off the roof when the accident happened. They call him a "kind, giving and honorable man."
McGee played as a wide receiver for the Green Bay Packers from 1954 to 1967. He helped his team capture two Super Bowl wins and five NFL championships. He scored the first touchdown in Super Bowl history.
Later, McGee became the color commentator for radio broadcasts of Packers football games.
McGee also co-founded the popular restaurant chain "Chi-Chis."
McGee was 75-years-old and is survived by his wife, Denise, four children and numerous grandchildren.
Funeral arrangements are pending.
