“It was a harsh treatment and Dinger was a tough guy to the end, it comes as no surprise to those who know what kind of competitor he was,” former chief of the Titans, Jeff Fisher, coach, said in a news release. “He was a man. No matter how weak he looked, how weak it sounded, never had a complaint and fought this cancer, since only expected to fight it.”
