Sadly, the Waza family has lost a dear friend and coach,
March 03, 2015
March 3, 2015

Sadly, the Waza family has lost a dear friend and coach, Seamus Rustin. Seamus passed away late yesterday (3/2/2015) of a heart attack at the age of 38 just after he finished coaching the game he loved. He is survived by his loving family – his wife Regilene and their three children Silas, Mila, and Lucian.

The Seamus Rustin Family Memorial Fund has been established to show our love and support for Seamus and his family in their time of need. To donate, visit: www.gofundme.com/nn3f4o.

We ask that our Waza family keep Seamus’ family in your thoughts and prayers.

Seamus made an impression on everyone he came across and whose lives he touched.
