Babin dies after battle with bone cancer - Orillia Packet & Times

Wednesday, July 5, 2017

He forged a close bond with both Bill and Jerry Smith when they bought the team; the duo, which owned Seeburn Metals, hired him as an employee and he was on their payroll until he drew his final breath even though they sold their business more than 20 years ago."He worked in our quality control department until we sold the business and then he kind of became our personal go-to guy," said Smith. His duties were myriad from banking to property maintenance to ferrying their kids to various appointments. "Our kids are absolutely broken up by Ed's death. He was our guy."Countless players could utter a similar refrain about Babin, said longtime local junior hockey billet and volunteer Sandy Donald. "He lived for those guys," she said. "He was gruff and tough, but it was all bluster. He had a heart of gold."Such was their love of the curmudgeon, two players - Dave Dorosh and Francois Charlebois - bought Babin personalized licensed players for his beloved Mustang. He was as proud of that 'Fanger' plate as he was the car, Donald said.While no one is certain about the origin of his nickname, Donald vividly remembers Babin flipping his false teeth at her then-young daughter in the early 1980s. "One day, in the auditorium after a game, during a booster club, he flipped his teeth and they went flying across the room and under a table," she recalled with a laugh. "He was trying to make my daughter laugh. Before he got the false teeth, he had just a couple of teeth that kind of resembled fangs, so I think that's where his nickname came from."Dave Dunn, who has been a behind-the-scenes hockey volunteer for decades, said Babin, who had turned 81 in April, was in a class by himself. "He was a unique guy who came across rough, who would tell you what he thought ... he could be a grumpy old bugger," said Dunn. "But, deep down, he had a heart of gold."He also played a key role on many teams. "The average person probably doesn't know how close hockey players get to coaches and volunteers like Ed," said Dunn. "He kept in touch with almost every guy who played here. It was amazing... he will be missed by a lot of guys."One of those guys is Roy Micks. Micks played for the T'ways during its championship run and later ran the team when it became the Terriers of the Provincial Junior Hockey League. Babin was a key figure in both eras. "You couldn't ask for more of a volunteer. He volunteered from about 1978 until 2009, which is incredible. And, every guy I contacted to tell them about Eddy being sick "¦ you know what, every single one remembered him and appreciated him."As an example, Micks contacted Rob Doyle, who played in Orillia just one season before going to play professional hockey in Australia and in the AHL. "Rob called Eddy in the hospital and gave him just one clue" as to his identity, Micks said. "Eddy knew who it was right away. Rob told me Eddy helped him out a lot when he was here. He said: 'He was good to me as a player.'"A celebration of Babin's life will be held July 5 from 7 to 9 p.m. in the Sam Brown Room at Kelsey's in Orillia. Memorial donations to the Marip...

Appeal ends, nearly $6000 raised - Sault Star

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Hunter Chamberlain and their son, Bentley, died last Tuesday. Their SUV, northbound on Highway 69 near Parry Sound, crossed the centre line and collided with a transport. The SUV caught fire. Ontario Provincial Police have not released the names of the deceased pending identification by Ontario Centre of Forensic Sciences. Whitehead's best friend, Rebecca Chapman, launched a GoFundMe appeal (https://www.gofundme.com/help-support-jodey-whitehead) on Friday to help Victoria's mother, Jodey Whitehead, pay for funeral costs. Her goal was $2,000. That target was exceeded by more than 50 per cent within 24 hours with $3,186 donated by 66 contributors by 10 a.m Saturday. By Sunday afternoon, the tally grew to $5,980 from 136 donors. In an update, Chapman thanked donors and said the appeal was finished. “As per request by the family, I will be closing donations and taking the funds to them,” she said. “They decided that this is an overwhelming, but very appreciated amount of support, and that they would like me to close the fund as we have reached nearly $6,000.”Many donors offered their condolences about the trio's death. “My heart goes out to anyone impacted by this tragedy,” said Danielle Heatley. “I can't imagine the pain of losing a child and grandchild,” said MaryClaire Wood in a post. “I pray you find the strength to deal with this terrible loss.“Thanks to everyone for their generosity,” said Jonathan White...

Brockville area joins in mourning - Brockville Recorder and Times

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Humboldt later this week. https://t.co/DvpAsm2Ybw#HumboldtStrong#PutYourStickOut#XBRpic.twitter.com/h2EyHhQjrj — City of Brockville (@BrockvilleON) April 9, 2018Organizations across Ontario were paying tribute to the victims of last week’s fatal bus crash.The bus carrying the junior hockey team to a playoff game collided with a semi truck in northeast Saskatchewan on Friday, killing 15 people and leaving 14 others injured.The fatalities included 10 young teammates, ranging in age from 15 to 21, and five team personnel. Like many people across the country, the Wilsons placed a hockey stick on their porch in what has become a universal tribute to the lost players.The book of condolences is the product of city staff’s collaboration with Brockville’s Irvine Funeral Home.The tragedy also hit close to home for Mike Galbraith, a funeral director at Irvine who helped coordinate the book of condolences.“As a hockey dad, as a parent, as a funeral director, I can appreciate the chaos that’s going on,” he said.“Sometimes, people need an outlet.”Signing a book of condolences is a small way of confronting the powerlessness one feels in the wake of such a tragedy, said Galbraith.“This one’s kind of near and dear to the heart,” he added.“If I had the means and the time, I would fly out there today on a plane and help them out.”The Brockville Braves plan on contributing one dollar from every ticket sold to Tuesday’s Game at the Memorial Centre to a crowdsourcing fund for the victims. Galbraith said another version of the book of condolences will be set up at the arena ahead of that game.“It will all be added to one and sent off at the end of the week,” he added.Some 30 people had signed the city hall book as of mid-afternoon Monday, as word of the tribute began slowly to spread.Some of the people signing came from out of town, including Prescott, Mallorytown, Delta and Kingston.All of the local signatures and messages will be conveyed to Humboldt city hall.Elsewhere locally, organizers of the Brockville Winter Classic Weekend used their Facebook account to post tributes to the Broncos and a link to the crowdsourcing page.Brockville Mayor David Henderson said the scope of the tragedy extends beyond the world of hockey.“I think it wa...

'They lost their goalie': Don Mills Flyers pay tribute to murder victim Roy Pejcinovski in emotional return to the ice - Toronto Star

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Flyers and Marlboros.  (Vince Talotta / Toronto Star)Pejcinovski was a promising prospect in next year’s Ontario Hockey League draft. “We remember him as a teammate and friend,” West said, urging the boys to “sit together, support each other, and keep playing the game.” And they did, but with a twist. The two teams tossed their sticks into pile at centre ice — with no discernible divide between Flyers and Marlboros. Players picked sticks at random, shuffling them like a deck of cards into two new teams.They then peeled their rival jerseys and put on new ones, black or white with a capital “R,” for Roy, in burgundy. The colour in the boys’ socks — orange and black for the Flye...
