CFL mourns the loss of J. Donald Crump Staff

TORONTO — Today CFL Commissioner Mark Cohon issued a statement on the passing of former CFL Commissioner John Donald Crump:

“Oh behalf of our league, I want to express my heartfelt sympathies to the family of John Donald Crump on the occasion of his passing. Mr. Crump, who served as financial officer of Maple Leaf Gardens,  was Commissioner of the Canadian Football League from January, 1990 through December, 1991. It was a colourful time in the CFL, perhaps best remembered for the splash made by the Candy-Gretzky-McNall owned Toronto Argonauts, who captured the 1991 Grey Cup in grand style. We wish his wife Erma McPherson, children and grandchildren, comfort and peace at this difficult time.”
