Modell died in 2012 at age 87. He spent 43 years as an NFL owner, overseeing the Cleveland Browns from 1961 until he moved the team to Baltimore in 1996 to become the Ravens. The move left many Browns fans bitter.

Modell and his wife, Patricia, are buried at Druid Ridge Cemetery in Pikesville.

A phone number for Serbu could not be found.
