An unfortunate act of violence took the life of one of our fellow Michigan referees, you can read about it here.

John Bieniewicz age 44 died at a Detroit Hospital on Tuesday, July 1.  He was a registered soccer referee and was president of the Tri-County Soccer Referee Association.  He leaves behind his wife and two sons.
