The Dallas Cowboys franchise is in mourning this week after tragic news came down that Phil Whitfield, the AT&T Stadium and Art ambassador, died on Wednesday at the age of 62.
He was found unresponsive in his home on July 26. His cause of death is unknown. He was born on July 29, 1960, in Dallas and graduated from Dallas ISD’s Roosevelt High School.
Whitfield began his career 30 years ago as a security guard in the old Texas Stadium and has been a presence with the team ever since. In 2009, he became the AT&T Stadium and Art Ambassador.
“He really had an extreme and intense love for the Cowboys and Jerry Jones and his wife Gene treated him like family,” said his brother Roosevelt Whitfield.
Whitfield gave stadium tours to school children, celebrities, and even former presidents.
Back in 2014, he helped curate 58 pieces of world-class contemporary art housed at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.
Anyone who visits the stadium remembers his name and will never be forgotten for all that he has done and the loyalty he exhibited.
Funeral arrangements are pending.
The Dallas Cowboys are likely to dedicate this 2023 season to the memory of Whitfield and all he did for the franchise for over 30 years. Prayers and condolences to his friends and family.
