The HFA Family Mourns the Loss of a True Leader and Champion

Don Edwards and his son Spencer, in tragic accident

Updated Saturday November 3, 2018 by Hamilton Football Association.



Our football community, the community at-large, and our HFA family mourns the tragic loss of our friend, long time volunteer, mentor and coach, Don Edwards and his son, Spencer, former HFA Ticat. 

Before becoming a member of the Ontario Football Alliance (OFA) Board of Directors and eventually President of the OFA, Don was a tireless volunteer coach with HFA. He was always passionate about promoting the game as the greatest sport on earth and also volunteered many days calling the play-by-play at Tim Horton Field for the Jr and Varsity Ticats (never failing to give that "extra special" shout-out to our Tiger-Cats). We will miss you both.


Visitation on Monday, November 5th from 2-4pm and 6-9pm at the Caledonia Lions Hall (100 Haddington Street, Caledonia) and a Celebration of Life will be held on Tuesday, November 6th at 11:00 am at the Caledonia Lions Hall.


A GoFundMe page has been set up for the Don and Spencer Edwards Memorial Fund at:


Our HFA Family extends its deepest condolences to the Edwards Family.
