It is with a heavy heart that our Deerfoot family pass along the news of our team mate’s passing. Jake Buitenwerf pictured here in 2009 with his coach and father Art, passed away Thursday afternoon June 14th. Many of our players and coaches are saddened for Art, Trina and daughter, and team mate, Hanny at this difficult time.
Jake and Hanny were both Eagles and Art coached them both and played for the Mens Eagles, our senior affiliate club.
Service will be held June 23rd 2:00pm at Mewata armories, where Jake was a Cadet. It will be military style and anyone wishing to wear camouflage clothing are encouraged to do so.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to 604 Moose Royal Canadian Air Cadet Squadron, Mewata Armoury, 801 11 St SW, Calgary, AB, T2P 2C4. Tel 403-263-0300,www.604moose.ca.
Our teams are asked to pay tribute to our former member of the Deerfoot Soccer family by wearing armbands during their next game. Black or any colour electrical tape will suffice. Thanks to the U12 Tier IV-V Eagles for sending in their team photo today:
