R.I.P. Neil Sedgewick

Patti Sebestyen gave me the bad news.

Former Saskatchewan gymnast Neil Sedgewick died suddenly and unexpectedly. And very young for such a fit man.

He was a performing in a Stage production of Evita when it happened. 😟

When I was competing back in the late 1960s, Neil would play Floor music on a LIVE piano for the girls. Then put on his grips, run over — and compete H Bar.

Though a very good gymnast for his era, I mainly recall Neil being the cool guy.

He competed for St. Joseph’s and Marian Gymnastics which is today Marian Gymnastics, Saskatoon.

Funeral Tuesday, May 21st.

Rest in peace.

Neil Sedgewick
