At 81, George Kalil, the most recognizable Arizona Wildcat basketball fan of the last 40 years, has died in Tucson. He sat in the front row of almost every game -- and every bus trip -- with Lute Olson and Fred Snowden teams. He recently committed a $1 million gift to the University of Arizona McKale Memorial Center renovation project. RIP Mr Kalil 🙏🙏🙏

Very sad.  Spoke with the Kalil "bottler" once.  Nice guy that was in love with Tucson.

I noticed he missed a lot of the games this last season. RIP Mr. Kalil.
