Another Ti-Cat great was lost this week with the passing of Ralph Sazio Thursday night. Sazio was a player, coach and manager for the Ti-Cats before moving on to serve as President and general manager of the Toronto Argonauts in the 1980’s. A Canadian Football Hall of Fame member, Sazio was a staple in CFL circles for four decades who was known for a gruff and tough exterior, but a kind and caring person. Commissioner Mark Cohon may have said it best, “He was a tireless worker in a blue collar town. He exuded strength in a city built on steel. And he never backed down.”
Sazio will be missed as the CFL suffers another loss of a great from its past. Our thoughts are with the Sazio family as they deal with the sudden loss of their husband, father and grandfather.
