What's the definition of a diehard fan? How about Donald Lee Sporaa, who passed away in December.


Posted by a family member to Twitter, the photo shows his gravestone carved out with the Redskins logo and name, a fitting way to display his fandom for eternity.

The photo comes just a few days after Donald would have turned 66 years old. He graduated from Clarion High School in 1968 and shortly after joined the U.S. Army, serving in the Vietnam War for nearly six years.

As his obituary reads, "Donald was a 'diehard' Washington Redskins fan and enjoyed the families' many camping trips."
