SEATTLE, Wash. – A family in Washington is mourning the loss of a beloved father and husband, who met his “untimely demise” recently.

Michael Vedvik wasn’t feeling well on Super Bowl Sunday, even though his Seattle Seahawks were playing in the championship game.

His family said he was complaining of indigestion but refused to go to the doctor.

On Monday morning, his wife found Vedvik dead in his home.

The Spokesman-Review published his obituary, where the family revealed what caused his death.

“We blame the Seahawks lousy play call for Mike’s untimely demise. Mike was greatly loved and will be dearly missed,” it read.

His family says Vedvik likely died from a heart attack.

They say he never got a chance to watch the game or the questionable call, adding that he recorded it before going to bed early.
