“I am deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Tony Gwynn. We all lost someone very special today,” Chargers President Dean Spanos said in a news release. “This is a tremendous loss. I extend my deepest condolences to Alicia and the entire Gwynn family.”
The Chargers had planned to surprise fans across the county Monday by making unexpected appearances for “Thank you San Diego Day.” Last year, team members made appearances at the San Diego Zoo and Mission Beach.
