Longtime Packers writer Art Daley passed away
Art Daley saw more football history than most of us can ever imagine witnessing.
He coverage of the Green Bay Packers spanned the careers of Curly Lambeau and Vince Lombardi, and the longtime sports editor for the Green Bay Press-Gazette died Saturday. He was 94.
Daley, who was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame as a contributor in 1993, was an original voter for the Pro Football Hall of Fame and performed those duties from 1963 to 1998.
"This was really more than a job," Daley said in 1968 when he left the beat and the sports editor’s job, according to the newspaper. "I took it ... maybe ... too much to heart. But in a town like this, I think you have to be that way."
Daley retired from the newspaper in 1979, but he covered the team as a columnist for the Packer Report from 1978 through this past season, attending the home games.
