Tommy Loughran's Grave

Tommy Loughran's Grave
Holy Cross Cemetery
626 Baily Rd.
Yeadon, PA 19050
(Plot: Section 23, Range 6)

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to visit the grave site of Tommy Loughran at Holy Cross Cemetery in Yeadon, PA. Tommy was a professional boxer who fought professionally from 1919 to 1937. He held the World Light Heavyweight title between 1927 and 1929.

Tommy is buried in a plot that also contains the remains of other members of his family. You can locate the Loughran family plot by looking for the yellow, rock, section marker with a black 23 painted on it. The Loughran marker is visible from the adjacent road.

Below are links to two previous posts from my blog with more information on Loughran and his boxing career:
