Lew Stueck '53 Passes at Age 80

Lew Stueck ’53, the legendary Loyola football coach, passed away on February 28 at his home in Monrovia.  He was 80.

A Loyola and UCLA football standout, Mr. Stueck was recruited at 23 by Loyola to be head football coach.  Utilizing his famed single wing attack, he turned around the Cub team and achieved an overall record of 32-14-3, culminating in Loyola’s first CIF Championship in 1962. Mr. Stueck was honored by Loyola High School in 2014 with the Cahalan Award, the highest alumni honor. It is given for distinguished and meritorious service to Loyola and its community, the city of Los Angeles, the state of California and the United States.

A memorial Mass will be held at Xavier Center on Tuesday, March 22 at 4:30 p.m.  It will be presided by Loyola Marymount University Chancellor Fr. Patrick Cahalan, SJ. To help us better plan for the memorial of this well-loved Cub, please RSVP here.
