Stockton native, and longtime San Diego Chargers owner, Alex Spanos has died.

Spanos rose from humble beginnings to build a billion-dollar empire in real estate and construction. In 1984 he bought the NFL’s San Diego Chargers. It was under Spanos’ reign, that the Chargers reached the Super Bowl after the 1994 season.

Spanos was remembered on the Charges website, “It is with heavy hearts that the Spanos family announces the death of Alexander Gus Spanos, founder of A.G. Spanos Companies and owner of the Chargers NFL Franchise. Alex passed away peacefully surrounded by his loved ones on Tuesday morning. He was 95.”

Spanos’ wife Faye, died just two months ago. Funeral arrangements are expected to be announced in the next few days.
