The British Columbia sporting community is mourning the passing of a former Lion at the young age of 33-years-old.

In a post on social media on Wednesday, the BC Lions of the Canadian Football League announced the passing of former defensive end Craig Roh following a battle with cancer.
"Heartbreaking to hear about former BC Lion Craig Roh's passing. Our hearts go out to Craig's wife Chelsea, son Max and their entire family at this difficult time.

RIP Craig 🧡" The Lions said.

The Lions went on to release a statement regarding Roh's passing on their team website, saying the following:
"Craig was a consummate professional who always battled hard for his teammates. His dedication to representing the BC Lions and helping others was also evident during the many hours he put into our team's school programs. Our thoughts are with Craig's wife Chelsea, son Max and their entire family at this difficult time."

Roh's professional football career began in 2013 as he spent two years on the practice squad for the NFL's Carolina Panthers, before moving on to the BC Lions from 2015 to 2017. He also spent time with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers, where he was a Grey Cup champion in 2019, and the Toronto Argonauts.
The thoughts of everyone here at CanucksDaily are with Roh's family and friends at this difficult time.
