Last Updated: 22/10/17 7:05pm
Kevin Cadle, who presented the NFL coverage on Sky Sports for over 20 years, sadly died on Monday this week, aged 62.
Cadle was instrumental in growing the game in this UK and so, ahead of the third International series game in London this year - between the Los Angeles Rams and Arizona Cardinals at Twickenham - those closest to him have paid tribute to the great man.
Click on the video above to hear from Neil Reynolds, Shaun Gayle and Jeff Reinebold, but also see the impact Cadle had in the United States itself, with Brian Baldinger and Bruce Arians also saying kind words...
Neil Reynolds: "We do stage shows around the country - we had Jay Ajayi, starters from the Minnesota Vikings. But Kev stole the show. He was the star. That's a memory that will stay with me forever."
Reynolds: My mentor Big Kev
Neil Reynolds reacts to the sad passing of his mentor, colleague and friend, former Sky Sports NFL anchor Kevin Cadle.
Jeff Reinebold: "Kev was a mischievous dude. He had a twinkle in his eye. He really enjoyed laughing, he enjoyed life. He wanted good for everybody. One of the most compassionate people I've ever been around."
Shaun Gayle: "Kevin had a way of making people better, which is rare. He would have a conversation with someone and it would turn into laughter, and they'd be a total stranger."
Gayle: Losing a special friend
Shaun Gayle talks about the "devastating" loss of Kevin Cadle, his friend and former Sky Sports colleague.
Nick Halling, former Sky Sports co-presenter: "Kev came through the TV screen and sat in your living room with you.
He taught me not to take anything too seriously. A wonderful, wonderful guy."
Bruce Arians, Arizona Cardinals head coach: "I hate that we've lost Kevin, who I know was very instrumental in everything happening in London and I know you all miss him very much."
Brian Baldinger, former NFL offensive lineman: "Everybody you came in contact with you touched, that's a special quality you had."
