Former Green Bay Packers Executive Committee Treasurer and longtime member of the Board of Directors, John Underwood, passed away this week at the age of 81.
Underwood was first elected to the Packers Board of Directors in 1986. He was soon-there-after elected to the Executive Committee as Treasurer in 1990 and served in that role until becoming Director of Emeritus in 2005.
“John was a great supporter of the Packers and an integral member of the Packers family for many years,” said Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy. “I don’t think anyone knew the finances of the Packers and the NFL better than John. He was instrumental in the redevelopment of Lambeau Field in 2003, and is a main reason that the Packers are in such sound financial shape now.
“Our condolences go out to his wife, Gail, and his family.”
