Gordon May (1951-2013)

BC Athletics is very saddened to hear of the passing of Gord May, former Executive Director of Coaches BC. Gord passed away on September 30, 2013 in Victoria, BC. Gord was a great friend to many and a true supporter of Provincial Sport Organizations and their work to develop and train coaches. With Gord's support and the funding provided by Coaches BC, many coaches throughout the province had access to quality coaching educaton programs and support for advanced training. 

With a dry sense of humour bordering on desert condidions, Gord could always make you laugh and provide an alternative perspective on varous topics that helped in keeping it - 'all in perspective.'

He will be missed by a very supportive family and the many who knew him as a colleague, mentor, advisor and most certainly a friend.  

Gord's family is asking that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the BC Cancer Agency or to the YMCA / YMCA Camp Stevens.
