‘TOUGHEST, STRONGEST’ RABON LAID TO REST

Football great Ar Rabon laid to rest.

Big, bad Art Rabon was laid to rest on Saturday with a Christian burial at the Barrigada Church.

Considered the toughest and strongest player ever to grace our island’s gridlock fields, Rabon was a true legend as a running back for the vaunted UOG Tritons in the 1970’s when UOG was the lone civilian team going up against a host of military teams.

Rabon was voted #3 in the all-time greatest football players and was inducted into the UOG Athletic Hall of Fame just two years ago.

A host of former teammates were on hand to say goodbye to the Art, who passed away on March 15 after years of health complications.

The likes of Angel Calugay, Willie Brennan, John Borden, Jimmy Naholowaa, Kenny Lujan, Chris Mesa, Ivan Shiroma and Bill Castro were just a few former teammates who came out to say adios to big No. 87. (photo by Tony Diaz)
