Dear PFC Family,
This week has been tougher than most within the soccer community. We lost a great coach, mentor and friend from the Canadian soccer family way to soon. The scale of his loss was measured by the fact #RIP Gary was trending on Twitter for most of yesterday. Gary Miller was the Ontario Soccer Director of Soccer Operations and touched the lives of coaches and players including many of the Pickering FC coaching staff and our guest speaker on yesterdays webinar. We publicly shared our condolences on social media platforms yesterday and will await further news on how Ontario Soccer will formally celebrate his life.
“In every video-conference and call I was on today - they all started and ended the same way. Somber over the loss. Laughter at the anecdotes of how he touched so many in our game in Canada. An endless list of what & who he has influenced – his legacy will be forever imprinted”.
Earl Cochrane, General Secretariat, Canada Soccer
