BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Larry Lucchino, the Red Sox president when the team won three world championships, has died at the age of 78.

Lucchino spent 14 years with the Sox beginning in 2002.

During his time, the club reached the playoffs seven times and won the World Series in 2004, 2007, and 2013.

He also served as president of the Baltimore Orioles and San Diego Padres.

Lucchino is credited as one of the primary movers of renovating and modernizing Fenway Park instead of building a new stadium.

From 2016 to the time of his death, he was the chairman of the Jimmy Fund, which raises millions for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and is the Red Sox official charity.

Lucchino was a three-time survivor of cancer. 

There were no immediate details available on his cause of death. 

He is survived by his wife Stacey, daughter Blair, and son Davis.
