Paul Myers

It is with sadness that we are conveying news of the passing of Cru Alum Paul Myers who had been struggling with a long-term illness. Our most sincere condolences to Paul’s wife, Julie, and his children, Dayna and Mitchell, who were with him as he passed peacefully.

Paul was a Toronto Police officer for 33 years and played for Cru for a number of those years. He went on to become a transformative leader in the game in Ontario, served on club boards, advocated for inclusion, coached extensively at club and provincial levels, and co-founded TIRF, the Toronto Inner-City Rugby Foundation.

Paul was a gregarious and truly generous character who loved rugby and everyone who played the game – and his efforts to promote, improve and grow the sport will be a lasting legacy. Paul touched countless lives with his friendship, generosity, encouragement and enthusiasm – and he will be sorely missed.
