Larry Cheevers, class '62 -

The Union was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Larry Cheevers (class '62), brother of John (class '66) and Thomas (class '70).

Larry passed away this week in Vancouver, Canada. I am reliably informed that Larry, originally from Galway was a larger than life character and indeed a very fine rugby player having played for both Connacht and The Irish Wolfhounds. Larry was a renowned dentist with a large practice in Vancouver.

Yesterday there was a touching tribute in the Galway Advertiser for the late Larry.
