Canadian Snooker Icon Michael Laucke Passes
It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of a great Canadian snooker icon this week.
Michael Laucke, a former North American Snooker Champion has passed away after living what most would call a remarkable life.
“I was fortunate to meet Michael years ago when he came to watch the inaugural Richler Cup, in Montreal, Quebec,” said Snooker Canada President, Patrick Guigui. “He had a very humble way about him for what he had accomplished, not just in snooker, but also on the world stage of music.”
After defeating the great George Chenier, Michael was packing his bags to play professional snooker in England back in the 1960’s, when something interesting happened. An elderly successful businessman asked Michael, why are you pursuing snooker Michael? Music is in your soul….next thing you know, Michael opened for the Beatles, and the rest, as they say, was history.
Michael went on to play music all over the world alongside countless celebrities and dignitaries.
