It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Executive Board Member & CAC Honoree, Robert “Bob” Leonard. Bob passed away this morning, Saturday January 9, 2016 at 74 years of age. He was very active in the Cauliflower Alley Club as long as health permitted. Bob earned the title of CAC Ambassador of Canadian Relations due to his involvement of creating large amounts of Canadian wrestlers supporting the CAC through memberships and attending the annual reunion.

The family ask for your respect, privacy & understanding at this time.

  9. I am truly saddened that I will not be able to converse with Bob again. We spent countless hours discussing wrestling.
