Ed Laverty - a Celebration of Life | Tudor Hall | Thursday, 07. December 2017

Our father, Ed Laverty, was a man who was deeply passionate about sports and people. "The Godfather of Touch Football" lead the Ottawa Nepean Touch Football League to its 50th year of operation. He also presided over Touch Football Ontario for nearly a decade and helped launch Touch Football Canada.

He was an exceptional athlete who excelled at hockey, broomball and of course touch football. While he was always a threat as a receiver and defender in his earlier days, he’s better known as the savvy quarterback who created the infamous and widely adopted “overload offense”.

He was a special man, who would give you the shirt off his back. He was always quick to lend a helping hand and extend an open door to whoever needed it. He was a jokester, famous for his one liners and a loyal friend.

He was a community builder who brought thousands of people together to form lasting friendships. His selfless efforts were acknowledged in 2014 when he was inducted into the Ottawa Sports Hall of Fame.

Most importantly, he was a loving husband to our mom Trudy and a dedicated father to both of us.

He’s an irreplaceable "One of a Kind" humble man and he is already missed beyond measure.

Please join us in celebrating a great man who left a legacy and imprint on our hearts that will continue to shape our lives forever.
