Larry Byrne – An Inspiration for New England Track and Field

Over 30 years ago when I partnered with Lindy Remigino to publish and maintain the official records books for Connecticut cross country and track & field I was introduced to Larry Byrne as β€˜the’ resource for New England records. In succeeding years, I had several opportunities to converse with Mr. Byrne and always came away inspired by his knowledge as well as with tremendous respect for his commitment to our sport and athletes. Sadly, Mr. Byrne passed away Wednesday at the age of 88 at his home in Rhode Island. I will miss Mr. Byrne for his insight and dedication as our New England Track -XC historian and journalist.

Thanks,
