DE PERE (WKOW) -- A 90-year-old DePere man is one of 10 people being considered for the Packers Fan Hall of Fame.

Ken Trinkner says his love for the team grew during the 40s, when he started selling programs for games at City Stadium.

"People have been sending me cards. It seems like halfway around the world, thought they were dead by now, went to high school with them 50 years ago," he said.

Although Trinkner doesn't watch games at Lambeau Field anymore, that hasn't stopped him from passing on his love and Packers dedication to his children and grandchildren.

His grandson nominated him for the Packers Fan Hall of Fame.

"My grandpa is the number one Green Bay Packers fan. It wouldn’t be new information to me, it would just be a vindication of what I already know," said Taj Shahrani.

There are ten candidates for the Packers Hall of Fame this year, including Jane Rietmann from Merrimac. You can vote for your favorite on
