One of the men featured in a Visa credit card television commercial for having never missed a Super Bowl has died. He was 79.

Bob Cook had been to 44 straight Super Bowls but couldn’t make to Texas to watch his beloved Green Bay Packers defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers on Feb. 6. Instead, Cook viewed the game from his hospital bed with his wife, who decorated his room with green and gold lights.

Cook, whose obituary ends with “GO PACK GO,” died last week after a blood infection and other chronic issues, including congestive heart failure, his wife, Sarah Cook, said Monday. She said they had their bags packed and were ready to go, but Bob Cook told his wife three days before the game that he was too ill to travel to the game.
