It is with sadness that RCBA wishes to inform our membership of the passing of Warren Karsgaard this past week in Richmond.
Warren had fought a very determined battle with cancer for the past 2 ½ years and greatly appreciated the number of baseball friends who had visited him in the past few weeks.
In 2012, at the Richmond Sports Council Awards Celebration, Warren, LMBA co-founder and Monarch’s first baseman, was recognized with a special award for his long-time service to Richmond Baseball – coaching, Executive service, and field maintenance.
In 2014, Warren was the recipient of the “Roll of Honour” award by BC Baseball in the Builder category. This award was based on Warren’s 40+ years of commitment to youth baseball in Richmond and the adult LMBA league which he was a founder, player and manager. Warren spent many years up until 2011 as an RCBA Board member bringing his many years and wealth of knowledge to the boardroom.
This year, 2019, is the LMBA’s 25th Anniversary Season and they are dedicating the season in his memory.
A Celebration of Life will be held on March 30, 2019 at 10:30 a.m. at the South Arm Community Hall (9020 Williams Road, Richmond BC).
Warren will be sadly missed.
