Park Cities YMCA Loses ‘Beloved’ Referee
We’ve received word that Roy Gaskill, a beloved referee at the Park Cities YMCA, died this week after a battle with cancer. I don’t know that I’ve ever heard a referee described as “beloved,” as associate sports director Mona Callaghan did in an email to coaches, but a reader who alerted me to this news backs up that description. “He was always friendly, fun, fair, and kind,” the reader told me. A memorial service is scheduled for 10 a.m. on Friday at Fellowship Bible Church.
