Today's story is dedicated to the memory of Victor Ringuette who passed away last Monday. Victor was a dear friend and my boss for the past 35 years. He was without a doubt the most brilliant man I knew. From the first time I met him, on the day he said, 'You should come work for me' I liked him instantly. Smart, strong, generous, kind but firm. You always knew where I stood with him. And I know he accepted me as I was. Best of all, he let me do my own thing. He would always tell me, 'You do what you do' and 'Don't weaken son!'
Today’s story is dedicated to the memory of Don Woytkiw who passed away this past Thursday night. Don was our caretaker, icemaker at the A. G. Ross Arena for many years. He also was the only one I trusted to sharpen my skates. Always perfect. He made the best ice anywhere. Hard as a rock and smooth as glass. And along with his wife Sandy they kept the place spotless.
