Packers legend Bart Starr died in Alabama at the age of 85. Green Bay’s quarterback from 1956 to 1971 had been dealing with health issues for several years after suffering a stroke back in 2014.
The Packers released a message on the Hall of Famer’s death, via Packers.com:
“The Packers Family was saddened today to learn of the passing of Bart Starr,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. “A champion on and off the field, Bart epitomized class and was beloved by generations of Packers fans. A clutch player who led his team to five NFL titles, Bart could still fill Lambeau Field with electricity decades later during his many visits. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Cherry and the entire Starr family.”
They don’t make many like Bart Starr anymore. He will definitely be missed among the Green Bay faithful.
