ALUMNI MOURN LOSS OF ART DARCH
We are sad to announce the passing of Past Alumni President Art Darch, peacefully at his home on Tuesday, April 2nd at the age of 81. Art was an originating member of the Alumni and long-time member of the Executive Committee.
Art Darch was an excellent athlete, and besides playing football was a standout at Track & Field. Art actually turned down a Track & Field Scholarship at Michigan to play football. He joined the Tiger-Cats in 1952 and was quickly a starting Offensive Guard. He remained with the Tiger-Cats through the 1958 season. He missed the 1959 season due to injuries, but came back to play two seasons for the Toronto Argos in1960 and 1961.
Art was a tireless volunteer and in 2012 he was among the first recipients to receive the Hamilton Tiger-Cat Alumni Associations “Award of Distinction” for Recognition of His Outstanding Contribution To Community Groups and the HTCAA.
A memorial celebration of his life will take place on Saturday April 20th at Smith's Funeral Home - 1167 Guelph Line in Burlington (north of the QEW) From 3 until 6 pm
