Remembering A Great Teacher, Don “Doc” Ferguson

Sad to hear of the passing of Don “Doc” Ferguson”, who was a great teacher, basketball coach and mentor to several generations of Westdale kids. I was so fortunate to have had Fergy’s support, guidance and encouragement during my time as a student, athlete and coach at Westdale. It probably helped my cause that when I arrived at Westdale as a 4’11″ shrimp in Grade nine with a burning desire to play point guard on the basketball team, Coach Ferguson was a believer and the only guy in building smaller than I was. Along with many kids that had the benefit of Don’s wisdom and generosity, I was fortunate to have known this great man. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Marie and the Ferguson family.–ferguson-donald-gordon-doc
