Spare a thought for those close to Daryl Mahler. The coach and teacher at Denis Morris in St. Catharines, who served as convener for the popular Ontario Catholic Classic basketball tournament, was killed in a crash in southwest Ontario this weekend.
Mahler also coached football, cross-country and track and field at Denis Morris. He survived by his spouse, Theresa, who suffered bruises in the crash and their five children — Adam, 23; Ryan, 21; Matt, 20; Danielle, 18; and Michael, 14.
Condolences are due, since as we all know, every school community has someone such as Daryl Mahler who helps keep varsity athletics running smoothly.
