Chavo Guerrero sr. has passed away due to cancer of the liver.

Though an international star, Chavo was not as prominent in Arizona as his brothers Eddie and Mando or his famed father Gory.

Gory was actually from Ray, Arizona, not Mexico and was a mainstay in Arizona in the 1950s and 1960s, serving as founder of the wrestler family clan. 

Chavo was accomplished as both heel and baby.

He may also be seen as the evil Indian wrestler in the comedy film, The One & Only.
