ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) -- The Buffalo Bills will honor late owner Ralph Wilson with a public celebration and remembrance at the team's fieldhouse on April 5.

The event will feature memorabilia, exhibits and a guestbook to allow fans to pay tribute to the Hall of Fame owner, who founded the former American Football League franchise in 1959.

The 95-year-old Wilson died Tuesday at his home in Grosse Pointe Shores, Mich. A private funeral service will be held in Detroit on Saturday.

The Bills will also hold a private ceremony for staff, players, coaches and NFL personnel. The date has not been set.
