Former Denver Broncos defensive lineman Harald Hasselbach has passed away at the age of 56 after battling cancer for six months.

The two-time Super Bowl champion was diagnosed with metastatic mucinous adenocarcinoma and received an outpouring of support from teammates, coaches, and family.

Hasselbach played 131 games for Denver from 1994 to 2000, never missing a game during his tenure.

He is survived by his wife, four children, and four grandchildren.

“He’s had an overwhelming amount of support over the last week, including past teammates, coaches and family that’ve flown in from around the world,” the family stated.

“We learned he had the illness less than six months ago, and he fought as hard any human possibly could, with incredible strength.”

Hasselbach was a member of teams that reached the 1998 and 1999 Super Bowls and is among the few players to have won both a Super Bowl and a Canadian Football League Grey Cup.

Born in the Netherlands, he later played college ball for Washington after attending high school outside Vancouver.
