NFL Quarterback Dwayne Haskins’ Parents Will Not Attend Pittsburgh Funeral Due To Never Meeting His Wife: We Didn’t Want Our Son’s Funeral To Be The Place We Met Her
The parents of Dwayne Haskins have opted not to attend his NFL funeral service.
According to reports, the decision to skip the Pittsburgh service was made because they never met their sons widow, Kalabrya Haskins. In a statement, Dwayne Sr. And Tamara Haskins wrote:
“We have never met or spoken to the wife, and we didn’t want our son’s funeral service to be the place we met her for the first time.”
Earlier this month (April 9th), it was reported that quarterback Dwayne Haskins, 24, was killed in the early morning after being hit by a vehicle. The Steelers QB’s wife, Kalabrya Haskins, released further details about the accident, stating her husband was walking to find gas at the time of the incident. Reportedly, Kalabrya had spoken to Dwayne moments before the accident occured and alerted police when she lost touch with him. Subsequently, it was confirmed that Dwayne had been struck by two moving vehicles, fatally succumbing to his injuries.
Kalabrya later announced a public celebration of life would be held at Allegheny Center Alliance Church in Pittsburgh for her late husband. Noting that:
“His legacy will be honored with stories told by teammates, coaches, friends, family, and loved ones.”
Seemingly, Dwayne’s parents had no parts in arranging the Pittsburgh service, as they claim to have never met or spoken to their daughter in law who announced the service details. Despite, his parents put together two public memorial services for their son in their home town of New Jersey, as well as in Maryland where Dwayne attended high school.
