GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — The former publisher of the Green Bay Press-Gazette and president of the Packers Hall of Fame board has died. He was 75.

Michael Gage's wife, Patty Gage, said he died Sunday of heart problems after collapsing Thursday.

The newspaper reports (http://gbpg.net/UyjnzB) Gage retired in 1992, ending his family's dynasty as operators of the paper. Gage's grandfather, Andrew Turnbull, was one of three men who started the paper in 1915 and was its first publisher. Gage's uncle, Daniel Beisel, was its second publisher, and Gage was its third.

At the time of his death, he was also president of the Packers Hall of Fame's board. Patty Gage says he was the largest private shareholder of Packers stock.

Visitation will be Thursday and the funeral is Friday.
