Chavo Guerrero Sr. (known as Chavo Classic in WWE) died yesterday at the age of 68. Chavo Classic was the father of Chavo Guerrero Jr. and the brother of the late Eddie Guerrero. He enjoyed a stint in WWE in 2004 working a program with his son and brother, and also capturing the old Cruiserweight Championship.
Chavo Guerrero Jr. first reported the news of his father’s passing via an Instagram post:
Today the world lost a true rebel. He did things "HIS" way. Not always right, not always wrong, but He always followed what he believed in. He was diagnosed with Liver Cancer in early January of this year. As believer in Christ Jesus, he is now in Paradise. Today is a Sad day in the Guerrero Family. Rest In Peace Chavo "Classic" Guerrero Sr. #rip #nowinheaven
WWE issued a statement this morning on their website.
