If you ever attended any sporting event in Pittsburgh over the past 25+ years, you probably have seen Kenny Geidel selling various treats like Coke, cotton candy or lemonade when the Steelers, Pirates, Pens and Panthers were in action. 

Some may remember him as ‘Coke Guy’ or the guy who would shout ‘Lemonadeeeeeeee!’ at PNC Park.  Sadly on Monday, Ken Geidel passed away.  It was confirmed on Facebook by his daughter Amy below.

The Pirates are going to issue an official statement on Tuesday about Geidel’s passing.  I for one will miss him and going to games won’t be the same anymore.

R.I.P. Ken.  Here’s to you selling out of ‘Lemonadeeeeeee!” at the big ballpark in the sky.
