Lacrosse Legend Bob Parry
After leading the B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League in scoring in 1954, Bob Parry went on to an
outstanding Senior A career with the Vancouver Burrards, winning the Inter-City Lacrosse
League outstanding Rookie award in 1955 and becoming an integral part of three Vancouver
Mann Cup winners.
It was after his playing days when he really excelled. As Burrard General Manager for 1970 – O76
he was largely responsible for moulding the team that was a success both on the floor, going to
Mann Cup in 1971, 1975 and 1977, and at the gate.
In the late 1980’s Bob was again there to
help resurrect them. He brought the team back to the top with a Mann Cup appearance in 1990.
He has been a tireless behind-the-scenes worker with the Burrards.
