KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A website has been set up where the public is invited to direct a personal message to the family of late Chiefs coach Marty Schottenheimer or make a memorial donation in his honor.

The website, Schotty Strong, includes an obituary for the former Kansas City coach, who died Monday at the age of 77.

The family announced last week that Schottenheimer, who led the Chiefs to seven playoff appearances and 101 regular-season wins in 10 seasons from 1989-1998, had been moved to hospice due to complications from Alzheimer’s disease.

He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Pat, and their two children, Brian and Kristen.

Friends and well-wishers are invited to leave a message for the Schottenheimer family on the website as well.

For anyone wishing to make a donation in Schottenheimer’s honor, the family suggests the Alzheimer’s Association of Western Carolina or the Levine & Dickson Hospice House.
