Thomas G. Labrecque, who retired last year as president and chief operating officer of Chase Manhattan Corp., died Monday of lung cancer at a New York hospital. He was 62.
Mr. Labrecque spent 35 years at the old and the post-merger Chase. He became chairman and chief executive officer of the old Chase in 1990 and held that post for six years, until Chemical Banking Corp. bought it and took its name. He then became president and chief operating officer of the merged company.
