The Eastern Townships’ sports community was rocked over the weekend, as members from hockey, football, and baseball organizations reacted to the sudden loss of local scorekeeper and announcer, Steve Gosselin.
“Steve will be greatly missed, not only as a volunteer, as a work colleague, but also, he was a brother to me and to so many people. We were privileged to share so many wonderful moments with him,” said Robert Legault, public relations officer for the Sherbrooke Expos.
Gosselin, who was in his mid-40s, was discovered in his home by the Sherbrooke Police Service (SPS) on Saturday morning. He had been in isolation for five days after recently receiving a positive COVID-19 test result.
According to Legault, Gosselin spoke to his parents and a friend on Friday evening. When his parents didn’t hear from him the next day, they decided to call the SPS to check up on him. There will be a coroner’s report to determine the exact cause of his death.
