Carol was a great man of integrity that had a passion for family and sport. In younger years he was an active participant of the Raven’s Youth Club and valuable member of the St. Raphael’s Football Club Cape Town, South Africa. After coming to Canada he shared his passion for sport by coaching boys at the Port Weller and Concord Soccer Clubs and girls in the St. Catharines Ladies Softball League. As he matured he became an avid golfer challenging himself and finding relaxation with friends and colleagues on the course. Cremation has taken place with family and friends celebrating his life at the Clubhouse on Henley Island Sunday July 28, 2-6 pm. Thank you to the extraordinary teams at CCAC and Hospice Niagara. In memorandum the gift of play through jumpstart.canadiantire.ca or in support of the care and compassion provided by hospiceniagara.ca would be very much appreciated.
