Sources from his home said that he went for a nap in his Atlanta home and never woke up. A peaceful demise without troubling anyone. May God bless his soul.

The son of famous Cubs voice Harry Caray and father of Braves broadcaster Chip Caray was not in good health for past one year. However, due to his willpower and God’s grace he continued calling home games for the Braves’ Peachtree TV and their radio network
