TRIBUTE TO PETER FUGLEM
On behalf of the BC Government Employees Co-Ed Soccer Society, we want to recognize Peter Fuglem's significant contributions to the league over many years, and the loss resulting from his tragic death.The league has re-dedicated the "Friendliest Team" Trophy in Peter's name. The Peter Fuglem Trophy was announced at the annual general meeting in August 2019.
Peter played in the league for many years and also managed the Forests team. He was a strong competitor and keenly sportsmanlike — friendly on and off the field. His teams were a reflection of his personality. Peter was always a voice of reason in league affairs, and in 2017 stepped forward to be part of the interim executive for a year, at a critical time in the league's existence.
Peter was widely known inside and outside the league for his major professional contribution to forestry in B.C. — as well as to related areas such as emergency management and air quality management during the major fires of recent years. During those fires was one of the few times Peter asked his friends in the league for a little help, with many of his players away fighting fire.
Peter will be sorely missed as a player, a manager, a league executive member, and most of all as a fine human being.
