Bart Starr Dies at Age 85 in Birmingham, Alabama

Bart Starr, Hall of Fame 1960s Green Bay Packers quarterback died Sunday morning May 26, 2019 at the age of 85 in Birmingham, Alabama, according to the Green Bay Packers. He had been in failing health since suffering a stroke in 2014.

Bart Starr led the Green Bay Packers to win the first two Super Bowl titles in the 1960s (Super Bowl I over the Kansas City Chiefs in 1967 and Super Bowl II over the Oakland Raiders in 1968). Bart Starr won five National Football League championships for the Packers.

”We are saddened to note the passing of our husband, father, grandfather, and friend, Bart Starr. He battled with courage and determination to transcend the serious stroke he suffered in September 2014, but his most recent illness was too much to overcome.

While he may always be best known for his success as the Packers quarterback for 16 years, his true legacy will always be the respectful manner in which he treated every person he met, his humble demeanor, and his generous spirit.

Our family wishes to thank the thousands of friends and fans who have enriched his life — and therefore our lives — for so many decades and especially during the past five years. Each letter, text, phone call, and personal visit inspired him and filled him with joy.

His love for all of humanity is well known, and his affection toward the residents of Alabama and of Wisconsin filled him with gratitude. He had hoped to make one last trip to Green Bay to watch the Packers this fall, but he shall forever be there in spirit.”

— Family Statement

Bart Starr’s family thanked the friends and fans who had enriched his life over the decades, especially over the last five years.

Bart Starr married once to Cherry Starr.
