Obituary – Former international referee Dusan Dovicovic (59)
News from the National Federations

Bratislava, Slovakia, February 28, 2017. The Slovakian Volleyball family are in deep sorrow as they mourn the premature death of former international referee Dusan ‘Dido’ Dovicovic, who passed away at the age of 59.

Dovicovic started his refereeing career back in 1975 and quickly made it to the highest division of the former Czechoslovakia’s national league where he refereed his first matches in 1982. ‘Dido’ completed his International Referee Candidature Course in 1990 in Poland and eventually became an international referee one year later. He officiated, inter alia, at matches of the 2005 Universiade in Izmir, Turkey and was involved in Sitting Volleyball – formerly Volleyball for disabled – as well, attending the World Championships held in Cambodia as well as the 1996 edition of the Paralympic Games in Atlanta.

Dovicovic refereed thousands of matches throughout his career. Many players, coaches and sports officials in Slovakia and abroad as well acknowledged and respected his personality, skills and professional demeanour. Dovicovic was a member of the Refereeing Commission at the Slovak Volleyball Federation and acted as Chairman of the Advisory Board of the Slovak Association of Volleyball Referees as well.

His friends remember him as a professional, down-to-earth and friendly person, who was always ready to provide advice and to share his experience and knowledge of the game with younger, less-experienced colleagues. He stood out for his optimism and lived his life to the fullest.

Dovicovic was still refereeing and sharing his experience with younger colleagues (including his son) in Slovakia’s lower level national competitions for the last time only three weeks ago.

Europe’s Volleyball family would like to extend their deepest condolences to Mr Dovicovic’s loved ones and friends, as well as to all members of the Slovakian Volleyball community.
