MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Members of the CBS police drama “Blue Bloods” paid homage to an Alabama man who worked on the show and recently passed away.

AL.com reports actress Bridget Moynahan and crew member Jim Finnerty were among other members of the hit series to honor Richard Kerekes by wearing red University of Alabama t-shirts. Kerekes died Oct. 5 three days after his 68th birthday.

His son, Michael Kerekes, says his father was diagnosed with cancer last year. His son, a sports editor at the Meridian Star, tweeted a photo of Moynahan and Finnerty wearing the shirts.

After Kerekes’ death, Finnerty and Moynahan had custom shirts made so the cast could wear in the memory of their colleague. Both Kerekes and Finnerty were both dolly grips.

The show stars Tom Selleck and Moynahan.
