Former Ravens President David Modell Passes Away From Lung Cancer at 56


Former Ravens President David Modell passed away on Friday at the age of 56 after battling lung cancer the past few years.

Modell is the adopted son of former Browns owner Art Modell.

David was a former President of the Ravens, and is survived by his wife, Michel, three sons, Arthur Modell, David Modell Jr. and Bertram “Bertie” Modell; three daughters, Breslin Modell, Collier Modell and Aoife “Fee” Modell; and a brother, John Modell.

Modell was a fixture with the Browns, going from being a part of the grounds crew when he was 14 years old, to eventually by his father’s side and helping the Browns move to Baltimore after the 1995 season.

Art passed away in 2012 before the start of the season, while his mother, Patricia Modell, died in 2011.
