In Memoriam: Sam Sasso

By Ontario Volleyball, 02/07/20, 2:15PM EST


It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of OVA referee, Samuel Sasso.

An accomplished nationally accredited volleyball referee and basketball coach, Sasso was deeply involved in athletics in his native Windsor community, being a dominant force at the helm of the Windsor AKO Fratmen junior men's basketball teams in the 1970s. Sasso was active in sports until his passing, playing senior volleyball.

Sasso will be greatly missed by the OVA and its referee community.

Visitation will be held at Janisse Funeral Home (1139 Oulette Ave, Windsor) on Monday, February 19 from 2:00  p.m. - 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. Funeral services will proceed the following day at noon.
