It is with a heavy heart that we regret to inform you that Bill Leanues has passed away.
Bill had been battling cancer for some months and passed away on Thursday evening (May 15).
For many of us Bill was a friend, mentor and brother in the EMAIFO football officials fraternity.
He started officiating football in 1967 and never stopped. He was full of energy and always hustling from one game and sport to the next.
Bill worked football, baseball, soccer and basketball.
He rose through the ranks and became the assigning commissioner for the Old Colony,
Atlantic Coast, Patriot, South Shore, Mayflower and Cape Leagues.
In that role he flourished and many of us owe him for his faith and trust in our ability to deliver outstanding officiating in a game we all love.
We respectfully request you refrain from contacting Susan Leanues until the family has completed the arrangements.
When more information becomes available, it will be posted.
