We are sorry to inform of the loss of BISFed International Referee Cornell Markham from the USA. Many of those attending competitions in the Americas will know him.
His fellow Referees have said that Cornell was a kind and gentle spirit who put all of those around him at ease. His smile was contagious, his patience long, his friendship steadfast. Cornell loved being a USA and International Boccia Referee. He was typically a quiet presence at tournaments but he had the greatest smile and laugh and loved interacting with the athletes and fellow referees, some of who have said that it was their privilege to call Cornell a friend.
Our thoughts go out to his family and we thank him for his dedication to Boccia.
