Quinn, who began his career at York in 1970, amassed 2,656 points for Rovers through 75 tries, 1,200 goals and 10 drop goals in 393 appearances from 1975-88.
“It is with regret that we learnt this morning of the death of Steve Quinn following a period of illness,” the club said in a statement.
Whilst Quinn was at the Rovers, they won their first league title in history with him in the team. The 1976-77 campaign, which was only Quinn’s second season at the club after joining for just £500 from York, saw him break the record for most goals and points in a single season ever seen at Rovers.
He also would later kick the decisive penalty as the West Yorkshire club won the Challenge Cup, 14-12 against Hull at Wembley.
