Longtime ABC27 sports director, Gregg Mace, dies at 65

Gregg Mace, who has served as ABC27's sports director for nearly four decades, has died.

"With grace and dignity, my father has left us to be with the Lord today," Mace's son, Kyle, tweeted Saturday. "He was surrounded by family and friends that love him. We thank you all for your support, and ask for our privacy at this time."

ABC27 posted on twitter Friday Mace was facing serious health issues, which is why he was not on air for several weeks. He passed away at the age of 65.

FOX43 sends its deepest and most heartfelt condolences to the Mace family, as well as the ABC27 news team.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for the Mace Family, which will go toward medical bills and funeral expenses.
