Mourning in the WBC

The World Boxing Council received today the shocking news about the passing away of our dear friend and WBC Ring Official Claude Paquette.

On behalf of all the members of the WBC, we would like to extend to his family members our deepest sympathy and we hope God gives them prompt resignation to such a deep sorrow.

We cannot understand the mystery of life nor the ways that the Almighty has taken him; but we should rejoice in the goodness of his life that set so many values to those who had the fortune of being his friends.

WBC President, Mauricio Sulaiman, would like to thank Michel Hamelin, Chairman of the Quebec Boxing Commission for the opportunity he gave him of having the pleasure to speak with our dear Claude two weeks ago. President Sulaiman deeply appreciates such a special moment.

May Claude Paquette’s soul rest in peace.
