St. Vince promotes grassroots effort to add plaque to Lombardi's gravesite

St. Vince is helping to promote an effort to add a plaque at the gravesite of Vince Lombardi. Raymond T. Rivard

Vince Lombardi’s gravesite is simple, probably as the great coach would have wanted it.

However, for those passing by his gravesite, they may not understand the greatness that was the man named Lombardi. That’s because the simple site includes only a headstone with the coach’s name.

To remedy that situation, an effort being led by the man named Saint Vince was announced on his Facebook page May 25. It’s a chance to contribute to a fund that will place a plaque similar to the one mounted on his statue at Lambeau Field.

Here’s what Saint Vince has to say:

“Other than the headstone, there is no
indication as to who this man was and
what he did for the Green Bay Packers
and the NFL! We can change that!

This permanent bronze plaque
will teach & inform all future generations
of Coach Lombardi’s accomplishments
and will properly honor him for all time!

With your help, this plaque will be
formally dedicated on the 100th anniversary
of Vince Lombardi’s birth – June 11, 2013!”
