Robustelli died at Stamford Hospital in Connecticut from complications following a major surgery. He leaves behind nine children and 29 grandchildren.
Robustelli played for nine years with the Giants before retiring following the 1964 season. His career began with the Rams in 1951 and he played in eight championship games, six with the Giants. Robustelli was named to seven Pro Bowls in his 14 year career. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1971.
"It is a sad day for my family," Giants co-owner John Mara told the Stamford Advocate. "He's been a great family friend for many years. He's one of the legendary players in the history of the franchise. Most of all he was a man's man. He had an elegance and a presence when he walked into a room. He was like a father figure."
