Flames statement on the passing of Billy Powers
On behalf of the Calgary Sports and Entertainment Group, we are extremely saddened by the tragic passing of Billy Powers and his wife Donna Lee. He was a good friend and an Alberta Sports Hall of Fame inductee.
A legend in the Calgary sports media for more than 50 years, Billy was most noted for his time covering the Flames and Stampeders including working for the football team as a Media Coordinator. He was a very active person in the Calgary community and will be sorely missed. Our sincerest condolences to their families during this difficult time.
