In Honour of Coach "Toto" Felix Gonzalez

We are truly saddened by the sudden loss of our dear basketball coach, referee and mentor on February 22, 2021.  His strong will, passion, dedication and commitment to our sport, our kids and our community will be sorely missed.

He helped so many young aspiring basketballers and referees and gave generously of his time and talents both on and off the basketball court.

He now leaves behind a heartbroken family who’ve lost their beloved husband, father, son, brother and friend.

We know that God-willing, he would’ve continued to coach and officiate games and serve our community, while also working hard to support his family and his youngest son’s athletic goals and post-secondary studies.

Please consider making a donation and sharing this page to support his grieving family as they navigate the days and years ahead.  We invite you to also share your heartfelt words and kind memories in dedication to Coach Felix.

Rest In Peace, Coach Felix —Because of you, we’ll always hear the sound of your voice yelling and telling us to “work hard” as we move on in this life...you will never be forgotten.

“I hope the people I’ve touched have the optimism and desire to share their goals and hard work and persevere with a positive attitude” -Michael Jordan
