Vikings-Packers game to mark man’s passing

ST. PAUL – Even in death, one Minnesota Vikings fan won’t be skipping out on a showdown between his beloved team and the rival Green Bay Packers.

Don Brommerich, of Hugo, died of brain cancer earlier this month. His partner, Terri Moffitt, said loved ones will gather at the couple’s home on Sunday to watch the game and pay their respects to Brommerich.

Moffitt says Brommerich was a “no-fuss kind of guy” who wouldn’t have wanted some minister who didn’t know him to speak at a funeral. She said celebrating his life with a low-key party at home seemed better.
