Bart Starr’s family overwhelmed by outpouring of support

(WKOW) — Bart Starr’s family is working on plans to honor the Packers legend.

Starr died on Sunday at the age of 85.

The former quarterback was surrounded by family and friends in Alabama when he passed away.

Starr’s son, Bart Jr., says they’ve been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support since then.

“That’s humbling in itself to think about how many people Dad positively impacted in such a way as to elicit this level of support. It’s just remarkable,” Starr Jr. said.

He says their family is planning a private ceremony in the next week or so in Alabama.

Then they’ll try to put together a public celebration in Green Bay..
