Vic Tugwell Obituary, Death – The York Simcoe 5 Pin Bowlers’ Association would like to express their sincerest condolences to Vic Tugwell’s family and friends on the passing of this Hall of Famer on December 31st at the age of 73. Vic Tugwell was a member of the association for over 50 years. Bowler Vic Tugwell had been competing professionally for more than half a century.
Someone who has always considered Newmarket to be their permanent residence.
The first sport that Vic ever participated in was bowling, and he got his start in the sport at Odeon Bowl when he was just ten years old. After that, he started climbing the ranks of the YBC, which is where he would eventually hone his skills as a coach. After that, he became an assistant coach at the YBC. Over the course of the years, a significant number of our more seasoned bowlers have arrived at the realization that during the time that Vic was actively involved in bowling, he was widely regarded as one of the best coaches in the sport.
This idea has garnered support from a wide variety of people. This is how things were when he was actively involved in the world during that time. Vic was recognized as the first “Coach” to be given this honor in 2001, during the inaugural induction ceremony for the York Simcoe Hall of Fame, and he was subsequently inducted into the Hall of Fame after the ceremony was finished. This was Vic’s first time being inducted into the York Simcoe Hall of Fame.
On behalf of the York Simcoe 5 Pin Bowlers Association, We would like to extend my most heartfelt condolences to his wife Allison, their sons Michael and Matthew, and the rest of the Tugwell family on the tragic loss of their family member. Mr. Tugwell was a longtime member of the association. We can all agree that the fact that we were given the chance to know Vic and include the bowling community as members of our extended family is something that we should all consider ourselves to be extremely fortunate to have been given the opportunity to do.
