WILLOUGHBY HILLS, Ohio — Family, friends and fans of former Browns mascot Swagger will pay their respects Saturday afternoon during a Celebration of Life service in Willoughby Hills.
There will be a visitation from 1 to 3 p.m. and a service at 3 p.m. at DeJohn Funeral Homes, 28890 Chardon Road, Willoughby Hills. The event is open to the public.
The six-year-old bull mastiff had apparently been dealing with cancer over the past year.
Swagger retired in the middle of last season, handing over his mascot duties to his son, SJ. He has joined the Browns in 2014 and lead the team’s run through the tunnel before every home game.
“We will always remember him as the most loving dog we have ever encountered. His love was felt by thousands of people literally all over the world!!!” McLaughlin wrote on Facebook when Swagger died.
