The crash happened June 17 at the intersection of Flat Shoals Road and Guilford Lane near Old National Highway. Police said Chaun "C-Mac" McKeever was killed after a 16-year-old girl, who didn't have a driver's license, crashed into his car head-on.

Family members told Channel 2 Action News McKeever played flag football, was on the kickball team and loved spending time with his 8-year-old daughter.


Now, we also know he was a huge Atlanta Falcons fan -- and the organization is giving his family a token of their gratitude.

The Atlanta Falcons official Twitter tweeted that his seat within Section 103 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium has been removed and given to his family.

Our thoughts are with his loved ones during this time.
