Charles ‘Buckets’ Goldenberg
Milwaukee’s Charles Goldenberg inherited his nickname ‘Buckets’ from his brother Dave, a high school lineman with an unusual stance. A star Wisconsin Badgers fullback, the 5’10”, 225-pound Goldenberg signed with the Green Bay Packers in 1933.
A fullback his first two years with the Packers, Goldenberg was converted to guard on the recommendation of Mike Michalske. He played in the ‘36, ‘38, ‘39 and ‘44 NFL championship games. The Packers won three of those games.
After playing for 13 seasons, from 1933-45, Goldenberg owned a successful Milwaukee restaurant and served for many years on the Packers Board of Directors.
