Bedford Wrestling Mourns the Loss of Kenny Vance

  Bedford Wrestling is very sad to announce the passing of Kenneth Vance. Kenny was a long time fan, supporter and friend of Bedford Wrestling. His love of the sport and our team was a constant source of encouragement for everyone and he will be sorely missed as a member of the Bedford Wrestling family by all that knew him. There will be a visitation from 5-7pm on Thursday, August 18th at the Pawlak Funeral home (1640 Smith Rd) where a memorial service in his honor will follow at 7pm. RIP Kenny.
