Daryle Lamonica, the appropriately nicknamed "Distraught Bomber" because of his liking for the profound pass.

who drove the Raiders to their most memorable Super Bowl when he won the 1967 AFL MVP grant, has passed on at 80 years old.

The Raiders Family is profoundly disheartened to learn of Daryle Lamonica's passing recently," the Raiders declared in an explanation.

The Raider Nation will everlastingly miss his agreeable nature and comforting grin.

Lamonica's 34 TD passes in 1969 still stand as the Raiders' single-season establishment record, after 53 years.

Lamonica was drafted by the Packers in the twelfth round of the NFL draft in 1963 and the 23rd round of the AFL draft by the Bills.

In 1975 Lamonica played for the World Football League's Southern California Sun.
