After the recent passing of his wife, Missie, former Celtics player Bob Cousy ’50 spoke with the Worcester Telegram & Gazette about his 63 years of marriage. In the moving interview, Cousy described how their love developed over the years, and how they moved together through his career, raising their children and navigating her struggles with dementia.

“Our marriage was somewhat contrary to tradition,” he told the Telegram. “Most couples have the most intensity in the beginning. But I was always working. So we had the best and most romantic part of our marriage at the end. We literally held hands for the last 20 years.”
