CGSA Member – Stephen Verrall

November 7th, 2017

It is with great sadness that the Canadian Golf Superintendents Association (CGSA) announce the passing of long-time member, Stephen (Steve) Verrall who passed away on Sunday, November 5, 2017. Steve died of an aortic aneurism after spending the morning doing the two things he loved the most coming in to work and walking his dog.

Steve has been a dedicated member of the CGSA since 1982 and he had just finished his 30th year as the Royal Ottawa Golf Club Superintendent.

The CGSA will be making a donation in his memory to the CGSA Scholar’s Fund, which is used to support future turf professionals in completing their studies.

We will provide details of services for Mr. Verrall once they become available.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and colleagues during this difficult time. Steve will be greatly missed.
