Curly Lambeau is buried in the southeast corner of Allouez Catholic Cemetery, which is located almost directly east of here. He is buried in a family plot along with his father Marcel, mother Mary, and brother Oliver and his wife, the former Dorothy Haslam.
Lambeau, co-founder of the Green Bay Packers and the driving force behind their survival, died of a heart attack on June 1, 1965, in Sturgeon Bay, Wis.
Funeral services were held four days later at Schauer & Schumacher Funeral Home in Green Bay. Burial was the same day. Pallbearers included Don Hutson, Arnie Herber and Johnny Blood, three of Lambeau's Hall of Fame players. Former rival George Halas of the Chicago Bears was an honorary pallbearer.
"The final gun has sounded for Curly Lambeau," Msgr. John Gehl, longtime pastor at St. Francis Xavier Cathedral, said in his eulogy at the funeral home. "The Lord will total up the final score, and may God leave him with a winning score."
Curly's foot marker lies in front of a larger Lambeau tombstone. Another foot marker, which was donated years later, shows a sketch of Lambeau Field and the inscription "Founder of the Green Bay Packers."
