SSUSA Director McClaskey, 67, Dies

April 1, 2015 – Joe Ruggiero SSUSA staff

Terry McClaskey Sr., 67, of Akron, Ohio, manager of the Ohio Silverados and SSUSA Great Lakes Regional Director, died on December 28.

Terry also played in the Akron Silver League. Terry “loved softball,” said Joe Ballard, manager of Ohio Silverados. “He was a great manager and coach and was incredibly dedicated to the team.”

Ballard said that one of his fondest memories of Terry was when he and his wife, JoAnn, got married on the beach during the Ft. Myers’ Winter Classic. Ballard explained that the whole team showed up in their uniforms, hoisting up their softball bats like a military salute, while Terry and JoAnn marched through the players onto the shores of the beach.

Terry possessed a hearty sense of humor and quick wit despite his sometimes reserved demeanor. Often dancing, horseback riding, practicing karate three times a week; Terry “always had something going on” said Ballard. He remained an avid sportsman and committed coach until the very end.

Loved by many for his generosity and willingness to lend a hand, Terry will be remembered fondly by his friends, family, and the Senior Softball community at large.
