ANNAPOLIS, MD. — Arizona Sen. John McCain is praising former Naval Academy Superintendent Charles Larson, who died over the weekend, as a great man. McCain, who graduated in the same class as Larson at the academy in 1958, said in a statement Sunday that it has been a privilege and an honor to serve in Larson’s shadow, both as a young man and an old one. The Capital of Annapolis reported that Larson died Saturday at his home in Annapolis, Maryland. He was 77. Cmdr. Wes Huey, Larson’s son-in-law, confirmed Larson’s death to the newspaper. Huey says his death was due to pneumonia stemming from a two-year battle with leukemia. Larson served as the academy’s superintendent twice, first from 1983 to 1986 and again from 1994 to 1998.
