Chavo Guerrero Sr. passed away today at the age of 68. He was the older brother to Eddie Guerrero and the father of Chavo Guerrero Jr. Chavo Jr. took to his Instagram to send out a tribute to his father:
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
