    Post Remembering Lauro "The Fox" Mumar

    Two weeks ago, Alfie Almario died. Now it's Lauro "The Fox" Mumar. He died of lung cancer.

    Though I didn't get the chance to see him play, i remember my dad telling me that "The Fox" was a great player. Mumar was a member of the team that won the bronze medal in the 1954 World Basketball Championships in Rio de Janeiro.

    Correction: The man who passed away this week was not Lauro "The Fox" Mumar. It was his son, Lawrence "Larry" Mumar.

    One of RP's hoop stars is dead

    Inquirer News Service
    PHILIPPINE basketball lost one its colorful stars with the death Tuesday of Lawrence Mumar, a former national player and standout in the Philippines Basketball Association.
    Mumar, 54, passed away in Cebu City.

    A son of basketball great Lauro "The Fox" Mumar who skippered the RP national team to a third-place finish in the 1954 World Basketeball Championships in Rio de Janeiro, Lawrence reportedly succumbed to lung cancer.

    His close friend Johnny Revilla told the INQUIRER that, as part of his wish, Mumar's remains would be cremated immediately.

    Mumar reportedly left Manila for Cebu, where he stayed with a friend, after he discovered some three months ago that he was sick.

    Mumar was formerly married to actress Connie Reyes with whom he had two children, Lawrence Anthony and Karla.

    Mumar was a member of the Philippine national basketball team that finished second in the 1969 Asian Basketball Confederation (ABC) championship in Bangkok.

    He first drew attention as a lean but foxy star of the University of Sto. Tomas in the UAAP. He became a full-fledged basketball celebrity with his memorable stints with both the Meralco and U-Tex teams in local commercial circuits like the Micaa and the PBA.

    I do remember Larry Mumar, he was called "The Little Fox." I got to watch him play for U-Tex and he once played alongside the late Ricky Pineda and Danny Florencio. He was later released to Seven-Up after U-Tex absorbed the players from the Concepcion Industries franchise, which disbanded in the middle of the 1976 season.
