In honor of Father's Day, here are ten standout dads who have taken Packers passion to a whole new level—while raising some of the most devoted fans out there. If there’s a great Packers Dad in your life, share your favorite story and send him a Father’s Day e-card.
1. This dad who surprised his two kids with a trip to Green Bay.
2. This dad, who beat pancreatic cancer to watch the Packers win the 2011 Super Bowl with his daughter.
"When my dad was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer five and a half years ago and the doctors gave him very low chances of making it, he said his dream would be to stay around to see me graduate college, get married, and see the Packers win their fourth Super Bowl. My dad is now in remission, and has seen all those dreams come true. Watching that Super Bowl in 2011 with my dad was a moment I will always remember, and now we watch almost every game together.”
—Brittany from Scottsdale, AZ
3. This dad who ran out onto the Frozen Tundra after the Packers won the Ice Bowl.
“My father was an incredible fan and taught me about loyalty and the love for the game. He shared many stories with our family in his lifetime. The famous Ice Bowl was a favorite. He loved sharing how he was part of the group who ran out to the field. Such a pure joy and excitement came over him sharing his special Packers memories.”
—Tina from Madison, WI
4. This dad who watched a Packers game with his two-day-old daughter when she was still in an incubator in the hospital.
"I watched my first Packers game with my dad when I was only two days old and still in the hospital. When I was first born, I had to be kept in an incubator and my dad held my hand as we watched the game together for the first time. I plan on instilling my Packers pride in my kids someday as much as my dad did in me.”
—Nicole from Evansville, IN
5. The dad who startled his son by running around the house looking for a camera to take this picture of Bart Starr crossing the goal line to win the Ice Bowl in 1967.
"My first understanding of what it was to be a Packers fan was Dec 31,1967 when my dad frantically ran through the house looking for his camera so he could snap a picture of Bart Starr going over the goal line. When my dad passed away three years ago, all I wanted from his office was that picture. It hangs in my office today, the same as it did in his since that amazing day."
—Randy from Waukesha, WI
