One of the most iconic voices in the history of Fenway Park, and the only man since the 1910′s to ever call Red Sox games for two World Series Champions (2004, 2007) has died. Carl Beane suffered a heart attack while driving Wednesday. He was 59.

“We are filled with sadness at this tragic news,” Red Sox president Larry Lucchino said in a statement issued by the team. “His legion of friends with the Red Sox and the media will miss him enormously, and all of Red Sox Nation will remember his presence, his warmth, and his voice.”

Since 2003, Beane’s voice was one of the constants at Fenway Park.

By all accounts, Beane loved his job.

“When I get that instant response, a feeling washes over me like, ‘This is where I should be,’” Beane told Boston Magazine in 2008. “This is what I know I was put on Earth to do.”

He is survived by his wife, daughter and two granddaughters.

The team plans to pay tribute to Beane before Thursday’s home game against the Indians.
