It is with our deepest sympathies to Sue and the rest of the Perkins family, that we announce the passing of William (Bill) Perkins on Sunday, May 31st, 2020. Bill was a prominent member of the Ontario and Canadian wrestling and officiating community for decades. He took specific interest in youth wrestling, and was a pioneer in developing the youth wrestling system and rules that are now used in Ontario. Bill was also a great mentor to up and coming officials, and his dedication to the sport of wrestling has left a legacy that will not be forgotten. Please visit this link to leave a note of condolence, and for links to Diabetes Canada and Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities, where the family is asking donations to be directed.
