We are sad to announce that BC High has lost another legend. Rev. Larry Corcoran, SJ passed to eternal life at Campion Center this weekend at the age of 86. Fr. Corcoran was an inspiring English teacher and track coach. Deeply spiritual, widely read and blessed with a mischievous wit, he was revered by students, runners, and colleagues alike.
He inspired many BC High alumni, including Dennis Lehane ‘83 and Ron Fletcher ‘87, to become teachers and writers. His tradition - the "Word of the Day” - still lives on at BC High today with faculty who inspire the next generation to expand their vocabulary. This year also marks the 50th anniversary of the 1969/70 BC High Cross Country State Championship, the result of a near-perfect season led by Fr. Larry.
Notes of Condolence are wlcome to Fr. Larry's brother Francis (Frank) X. Corcoran. They may be sent to: 110 Audubon Drive Acton, MA 01720-4256

Saints of God, come to his aid! Hasten to meet him, angels of the Lord! Receive his soul and present him to God the Most High. Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May Larry now rest in peace. Amen.
