Dick Butkus’s Cause of Death Revealed

NFL Hall of Famer Dick Butkus' cause of death revealed: report

The death of Dick Butkus last month is one of the most stunning examples of numerology since the inception of this Blog. Check out my video from the day after it happened.

Yesterday’s update revealed that he died of a Stroke.

"Stroke" = 335 (Latin)

This news was published 335 days after Dick’s birthday:

Hall of Fame linebacker Dick Butkus died from a Stroke at his home in California.

"Stroke" = 88 (Ordinal)

"California" = 88 (Ordinal)

88 is 8 × 11

Butkus would have been exactly 80 years, 11 months old for the update:

In my original post on his death, the number 88 was of strong focus. Chicago sits right along the 88th meridian on our globe:

Dick’s full name was Richard Marvin Butkus. He died at the age of 80.

"Richard Marvin Butkus" = 88 (Reduction)

"Rchard Butkus" = 88 (Reverse Reduction)

"Eighty" = 88 (Reverse)

Bears founder George Halas died at age 88. The Bears are currently coached by Matt Eberflus.

"Eberflus" = 88 (Ordinal)

Butkus died on the birthday of Herb Kent, a Radio legend whose 8-letter name begins with the 8th letter and died at age 88 just before the Chicago Cubs won the World Series.

"Radio" = 88 (Reverse)

Mike Ditka

Yesterday was also exactly 971 months after Dick was born:

971 is the 164th Prime number:

164 is a number I mentioned in my original post.

Radio and Herb Kent both = 164

"Mike Ditka" = 164 (Capitals Mixed)

Dick Butkus was born exactly 164 weeks (or 37 months, 3 weeks) after Mike Ditka:

Ditka was 30703 days old for yesterday’s update:

373 is the 74th Prime number:

"Stroke" = 74 (Reverse)

The news on 11/9 fell 11 months, 9 days before Ditka’s next birthday.

Dick’s stroke on 10/05 was allso called a Cerebrovascular accident. This is not a term I’ve ever seen before, nor should the word accident really be applied here:Butkus, who was 80, died froma "cerebrovascular accident," or a stroke, CBS Sports reported, citing the Los Angeles Department of Public Health.

"Cerebrovascular accident" = 105 (Single Reduction)

"Chicago Illinois" = 1005 (Fibonacci)
