Garrett Gagne, an attackman at St. Lawrence University in upstate New York, died early Thursday morning after he was struck by a police vehicle in Chatham (MA), while laying in an unlit road according to reports.
The circumstances surrounding the tragic death are under investigation. The Boston Globe is reporting the 22-year-old Gagne, a native of Longmeadow (MA), was “seriously impaired by drugs and alcohol.”
Garrett, a government major, was a four-year member of the men’s lacrosse team and also worked on the game management crew for St. Lawrence football home games.
St. Lawrence president William Fox described Gagne as “an accomplished athlete and fine student,” in a statement posted on St. Lawrence University’s website. “When Mike Mahoney, Garrett’s lacrosse coach, contacted me this morning, he told me ‘Garrett was close to all of us on the team–a leader, mentor, and friend. His smile and enthusiasm were contagious. He could light up the field and sidelines with his personality. This sudden and shocking loss touches every one of us who knew him as one of our best.’ “
St. Lawrence has created a webpage with remembrances of Gagne here.
