Packers fans will have the opportunity to celebrate the life of the late Bart Starr, likely this fall.
“We’re still planning that. Obviously, we want the input of the family,” Packers President Mark Murphy tells WTMJ.
“We’re going to do it around a home game. It’ll be one of our early home games, we’ll have a special celebration. It’ll probably be halftime of a game. Just to be able to celebrate everything that he did in his life.”
Murphy says he has no doubt thousands of fans will fill the stands for the celebration.
“It’s pretty amazing the connection he had with our fans. The other thing, some of the charity work he did. For instance, he and Cherry really established Rawhide, and think of the impact that’s had for young men across the state.”
Murphy says what always stood out to him about Starr was that he would personalize every autograph and really made a connection with each fan.
“I don’t know that there’s a player whose more beloved by a team’s fan base than Bart. He’s just a pretty remarkable man.”
