It is with great sadness that we announce the passing away of our Club President and dear friend, Mitch Forbes. Mitch will be forever missed by all who knew him both personally and by his friends in the soccer community of Wexford Soccer and the Scarborough Soccer Association. Mitch had been a longtime leader in the soccer community and his passion for soccer and supporting the youth of our community will never be forgotten. He was loved, respected and admired by all who knew him. Mitch always had a smile for everyone, was a friend to all and his compassion and generosity were unmatched; he will be greatly missed.
