The daughter of San Diego Chargers great Junior Seau shared a heartfelt tribute to her father on social media on Tuesday in honor of his birthday.
Sydney Seau posted a photo of herself as a little girl at the beach with her father on Twitter and Instagram. “I love you forever and always,” she writes.
Seau would have been 47 years old on Tuesday.
Considered by many to be the greatest linebacker of all time, Seau played for the Chargers from 1990 to 2002. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this past summer.
He died in May 2012 from a self-inflicted gunshot wound in his Oceanside home, less than three years after his retirement.
