Holmgren, Buckley, Lambeau all covered in Packers history

I’ve gotten a bit behind in our look back at Packers history, courtesy of the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame, so here’s what has been posted by the HOF website the past couple of days, April 11 and 12

Cornerback Terrell Buckley Misses 
Minicamp for Baseball

Mike Holmgren

April 11, 1994 – Terrell Buckley is absent without leave, and his failure to show up for a three-day minicamp hasn’t gone unnoticed by Packers coach Mike Holmgren. “I’m disappointed,” Holmgren says. “In my talks with Terrell, we talked about that (missing minicamps for baseball). The minicamp, held in Mesa, Ariz. because the team’s indoor practice facility in Green Bay is under construction, is not mandatory. A year earlier, Buckley was fined for missing a mandatory camp while playing minor-league baseball for the Atlanta Braves.

Curly Lambeau’s Father 
Succumbs to Heart Disease
Curly Lambeau April 12, 1939 – The relatives of Curly Lambeau are attempting to contact the Packers head coach to inform him of the unexpected death of his father, Marcel Lambeau, in Green Bay. The senior Lambeau, a building contractor and former city official, succumbed to heart disease at the age of 62. Survivors include his widow, two other sons, a daughter and three sisters, all of Green Bay, and a brother, Dr. Emil Lambeau, of Bloomington, Ill. Funeral arrangements are being held in abeyance.
