It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we share with all of you the news that Micky Geller, from Ontario, has died suddenly.

Micky was a valued member of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette Water Ski Team, and the Ontario skiing community and he represented Water Ski Canada on many occasions including the U17 IWWF World Championships, the Jr. US Masters Water Ski Tournament, and the 2022 Pan American Championships.

As skiers and all the members of our community begin to mourn this great loss, many will acknowledge his amazing work ethic, unending passion, humour, athleticism, and charisma. During this difficult time, let us come together as a community to support one another and cherish the memories we have of Micky. The University of Lafayette at Louisiana will fly their flags at half mast on Thursday, May 18, to honour Micky and his contribution to the school and their Water Ski Team.
