Legendary quarterback Bart Starr dead at 85

Bart Starr, a quarterback at Alabama in the 1950s who became a legend in the NFL, has died. He was 85.

Starr, a Montgomery native, had been in declining health since suffering a major stroke in 2014. His family released the following statement through the Green Bay Packers, the team he quarterbacked to five NFL championships in the 1960s:

“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.”
Starr was a championship quarterback at Montgomery’s Sidney Lanier High School, but played at Alabama during a tumultuous time in the program’s history. The Crimson Tide went 10-2 and won the Orange Bowl during Starr’s freshman season of 1952, but slipped into mediocrity thereafter.
