many of you know by now, Matt Lenarduzzi our Web Master for the last 14
years recently lost his battle with Cancer. Matt has been an intricate
part of the Kelowna Men’s Soccer League, managing the web site but also
the main point of contact for many managers, coaches and players
throughout the season. He was one of the people associated with the
League that constantly went over and above what was asked of him, was
eager to do what was right and never hesitated to help out with the
league and issues that we were having.
although not a player, was a great fan of soccer in Kelowna and could
often be found at ENCO games or at the playoffs and cup games. His
efforts, dedication and commitment to our league will not quickly be
forgotten and are greatly appreciated by our 1000+ members.
Our soccer hearts go out to his family and friends. He will be missed
loved to walk the Mission Greenway, so his brother Steve Lenarduzzi
will be holding a very informal gathering to remember his brother at the
Mission Park Greenway picnic area on Springield road Sunday October 22
from Noon - 2pm. Please plan to attend - even briefly, to remember Matt
amongst his friends.
