Toronto, ON – The following is a statement from Rock Owner and President Jamie Dawick.
“The Toronto Rock family is extremely saddened by the passing of our good friend and the team’s General Manager, Terry Sanderson.
Terry fell ill in early November, suffering a heart attack while on a family vacation in Florida. He succumbed to the effects of the heart attack surrounded by his family yesterday in Florida.
‘T’, as he was best known to everyone, was with me since day one with the franchise after I bought the team in the summer of 2009. I learned a lot from ‘T’, not only about the game he loved so much, but also about loyalty and respect, something T showed in spades to his players.
He formed the foundation of how the Toronto Rock operate and build a team and it’s the legacy that he will leave behind for us as we move forward.
There will never be another like Terry Sanderson, rest in peace my friend.”
