Another one of the great Canadian 1950-60s Tiger Cats passed away on New Years Day.
The Obit reads:
With very heavy hearts we announce the passing of our father, Peter Neumann on January 1, 2020 at the St. Catharines hospital in his 89th year. Pete started his football path playing for his hometown St. Catharines Collegiate. At 19 years old he was recruited by both Hamilton Tiger Cats and the Toronto Argonauts. Pete not only made the team that first year in 1951 but ended up playing beside Ralph Sazio who would one day be his coach. Peter, #74, had an illustrious fourteen-year career with the Hamilton Tiger Cats. During those years he was named the CFL Eastern All Star nine times, and the CFL All Canadian All Star in 1964. He played in eight Grey Cup games winning three in 1953,1957 and 1963 and inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame in 1979. In 2011 he was inducted into the Tiger Cats Wall of Honour whereby his name has been hung high in Ivor Wynne Stadium (Tim Horton’s Field) and a plaque hung on the Tiger Cat’s Walk of Fame.
Here’s an interesting interview with him from 2016…
