Let me tell you how much our family has loved the World Cup Youth Soccer Tournament. Every spring, the Cordova Bay Soccer Club puts on this unique event that brings together youth soccer players from all over Greater Victoria to play their hearts out for one weekend. Our boys cry when it’s over. This one event was the vision of one man 23 years ago, Frank Leversedge. A sudden heart attack at Lochside Park, where he spent most of his 30 years volunteering, took him from us at the age of 74. His list of accomplishments are too numerous to mention. The amount of hours he dedicated to the young people of our community is staggering. There was no paycheque at the end of the day, just a love of the game and the young people that he helped so much. His last big contribution was to spearhead the construction of the new artificial turf field that will be named in his honour. We are much poorer for his passing and we could all learn a thing or two about selfless service from Frank Leversedge. We just want to to express our deepest sympathies to Peggy, Fraser, Renton and their families for their loss.
A celebration of Frank’s life will be held at Lochside Park on Friday, January 16, 2009, at 3pm.
