With the passing of Junior Seau still fresh in everybody’s mind, a good Samaritan has gone above and beyond for the former NFL great.
As first spotted by the North County Times, a mysterious billboard tribute to Seau has been placed along Interstate 5 in Oceanside, Calif. It reads “In Memoriam Junior Seau” with the messages, “Rest in Peace” and, “1969-2012″ surrounding a black-and-white photo of Seau clad in a Chargers jersey.
The Seau family had no idea the sign was even erected, let alone who the owners are, but “absolutely” like the design.
“We didn’t even know that it was up,” said Seau’s cousin, Wayne Godinet. “From what I saw when I passed it the first time, boom, it just came right at me. “It’s larger than life.”
