Tom Benson mourns death of his brother


Saints and Pelicans owner Tom Benson mourns the loss of his brother.

Larry Benson died Monday of a stroke in Italy.
In a statement, Tom Benson said his brother's "passion for business and sports was tremendous, but it was his passion for life and helping those in need that will define him."

Tom Benson also said his brother loved the thrill and excitement of Saints game day and the tip off of an NBA game, especially his San Antonio Spurs.

Larry Benson was 67 years-old.

Funeral arrangements have not been released.
