The Zeone Andrijaszyn Volunteer of the Year Award

Apr. 22, 2021

National Volunteer Week gives us the perfect opportunity to thank and recognize one of our strongest and proudest volunteers. Mr. Zeone Andrijaszyn left us far too soon and to recognize the impact he had on our sport, the Softball BC Board of Directors is announcing that his legacy will remain in the renaming of the Softball BC Volunteer of the Year Award to the Mr. Zeone Andrijaszyn Volunteer of the Year Award.
'Zeone was respected by everyone who came into contact or had any dealings with him. He was the consummate volunteer, dedicating untold hours and expertise to Softball BC. He was the epitome of someone who would always look at what was best for the entire province. He was modest, honest, personable, approachable and trusted by everyone. Zeone was a long-time member of Softball BC. He began his volunteer time in Richmond, coaching his daughter and then became a member of Richmond Girls Softball executive. Zeone’s background as a chartered accountant and his dealings with RGSA led the Softball BC board of directors, to recruit Zeone to the Board in 2007. He went to serve as Director until May of 2020. During his tenure, Zeone brought the organization back into financial health, overseeing many changes to the operation and a firm hand in steering Softball BC to becoming a sustainable organization. It was always his dream and goal to see Softball BC become one hundred percent sustainable, financially, and to begin to build a solid contingency fund. Sadly, his work was halted when his health faltered, but he left the organization in good hands with a succession plan and an achievable plan to reach his goals. Zeone is missed by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him - he leaves behind big shoes to fill and we thank him, and his family, for his dedication and commitment to our sport.'
