It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden and unexpected passing of John (Jack) Zboya last Wednesday. John was the the former Executive Director of Softball BC and our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends at this very difficult time.

A Celebration of Life will take place on Saturday September 10th at the Sheraton Guildford Hotel from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm.

From his family:
'He asked that we throw him a party within 2 weeks of his passing and that's exactly what we're going to do! Please join us in celebrating the life and accomplishments of John/Jack/Jake Zboya. Beer, wine, and coolers will be provided, as will non-alcoholic beverages and snacks.
