A STATEMENT ON THE PASSING OF KEN KASUYA FROM CFL COMMISSIONER RANDY AMBROSIE

TORONTO - Statement from Canadian Football League Commissioner Randy Ambrosie on the passing of Ken Kasuya :

The entire Canadian Football League family is deeply saddened today to learn of the passing of Ken Kasuya. Better known to four decades’ worth of CFL players as 'Kato', he did his job as the BC Lions equipment manager with professionalism, passion and a work ethic that was tireless and selfless. And yet, over the years, his personality and presence became just as important to his team and our league as the crucial role he played. He is one of those rare individuals who came to the CFL as a boy and dedicated his entire working life to our athletes and our game. In the process, Mr. Kasuya became as synonymous with the Lions as any star player or legendary coach. He will be deeply missed. Our sympathies are with his family, his friends and his many teammates, past and present.

- Randy Ambrosie, Commissioner of the CFL
