Bart Starr is a legend in so many ways! I am so sad to hear this news today. I remember first meeting him my rookie year at the Lombardi golf classic. He always had time for everyone and made everyone around him better. Praying for Cherry and their family on this sad day. https://t.co/kSDVQTEXJ4
I only got to meet you a few times but each time you reminded me of what an impact you can have by just being good person. One of the nicest people Ive been blessed to know and the epitome of what it means to be a professional athlete! RIP Bart Starr
Bart Starr was the most kind, thoughtful and classiest person you could ever know. I consider myself extremely lucky to have called him friend and to have been mentioned in the same breath. Deanna and I are praying for Cherry and the Starr family. #RIPBartStarr
Saddened to hear the news that one of my idols #BartStarr has passed away... one of those rare GREAT players that was a WAY better human being than fball player! He touched so many and will be deeply missed - the world needs more like him!
Bart Starr was a true gentleman and one of the kindest people I knew. I had elbow surgery following our ‘95 Super Bowl in Birmingham and Bart made a visit to the hospital. To this day, not sure how he even knew I was there. #ripbart
I’m saddened to learn of the passing of Bart Starr. His legacy has touched many people and I’m lucky to be one of those that was inspired by his spirit. Thank you for being the ultimate role model for professional athletes. Rest in Heaven
Bart Starr was one of the most genuine, sincere people I knew. He personified the values of our league as a football player, a family man, and a tireless philanthropist who cared deeply about helping at-risk kids.
Above all, Bart was a wonderful human being who will be remembered for his kindness and compassion. On behalf of the entire NFL family and football fans all over the world, we send our heartfelt condolences to his wife, Cherry; his family; and the Green Bay community.
Today is a sad day. Bart Starr was truly one of the greatest, both as a quarterback and as a man. He deserves so much of the credit for five @packers championships. Bart, you were a special player and man, and you will be greatly missed by all of us. @nfl@ProFootballHOFpic.twitter.com/AqbJCRWHSj
I’ve lost a amazing friend. Bart was a caring, loving and giving man. Words can’t express my feelings about him. He showed me how to be a great person, by the way he lived his life. Always making others happy. You are my hero. #RIPBart Mommy Cherry love you. pic.twitter.com/ks2ecg6mgP
So sad to hear about the passing of Bart Starr. I had the honor of meeting him at the Lombardi Golf Classic in 2012. He was riding by on a golf cart and I basically jumped in front of the cart to meet him. He was happy to stop to say hi and take a picture. I’ll never forget it. pic.twitter.com/d6YBuyomWd
One of the most unique privileges I experienced as a former Packer QB was becoming friends w all the Lombardi Packer greats that made Green Bay!! Getting to know Bart Start was at the top of that list. RIP Bart. It was an honor to become friends w you!!! You were the best!!!
America lost a great athlete but more important, a truly great individual with passing of @packers legend Bart Starr. Bart was not only a Hall of Fame quarterback, but he was a humanitarian and tireless philanthropist, who spent over 50 years helping at-risk youth (@rawhideinc).
Had many opportunities over years to meet Bart & he always made me feel like an old friend. Bart Starr never met a stranger. He was a gentleman, humble and simply a wonderful guy. Barbara & I send heartfelt thoughts & prayers to Cherry, his wife of 65 years, and entire family! pic.twitter.com/d07ldclmLI
