“Bob Wetenhall loved Montreal, his team and the CFL and he was loved in return,” league commissioner Randy Ambrosie said in a statement. As a member of the CFL Board of Directors from 1997 to 2013, Bob has always treated other owners with respect and kindness. He treated players, coaches, staff, fans and journalists as if they were owners. Our league is grateful for his many contributions. ”
A native of Wisconsin, Wetenhall graduated from Princeton University and was a founding member of the prestigious McConnell Wetenhall & Co. Inc.
Wetenhall became interested in professional football in the late 1960s, when he was part-owner of the Patriots of
Boston, in the American Football League. When the team made the
jump into the NFL, under the New England Patriots name, he remained part-owner of the team.
