I'm seeing a Facebook post that Bob Fry, former Ram, Cowboy, and Brown, died last night. No link to a formal obit yet

Sorry to hear this, as Zeke was a speaker at the 2016 PFRA meeting in Green Bay and myself and many others got to meet and talk with him.

I've always remembered Zeke Bratkowski for coming off the bench when Bart Starr was hurt at the beginning of the 1965 playoff game against the Colts. And bringing them back from a 10-0 deficit to a tie, and taking the Packers into FG range to win in Sudden Death.
