Humboldt Broncos bus crash: Funeral service held for radio broadcaster, 'amazing man' Tyler Bieber - Saskatoon StarPhoenix

Thursday, April 12, 2018

April 12, 2018, of play-by-play announcer Tyler Bieber, the first of 16 victims in the Humboldt Broncos bus crash to be laid to rest.Michelle Berg / Saskatoon StarPhoenixShareAdjustCommentPrintHUMBOLDT — The parking lot was full as family, friends and loved ones — many wearing the jersey of their favourite sports team, many with ‘BroncosStrong’ bumper stickers on their vehicles — attended the funeral of play-by-play announcer Tyler Bieber, the first of 16 victims in last Friday’s Humboldt Broncos bus crash to be laid to rest.The service was held Thursday at Elgar Petersen Arena, where the Broncos play their home games. Bieber, who turned 29 in February, was well known in Humboldt’s sports community, both for his on-air work with radio station Bolt FM and also the amount of time he volunteered for local teams and organizations.Following the hour-long service, a procession of vehicles — with a Bolt FM car near the lead — slowly left the parking lot. Many of those quietly entering and exiting the arena were holding hands or putting their arms around others in support. Tyler Bieber, who provided play-by-play commentary for the Humboldt Broncos and was traveling with the team to their game in Nipawin, was confirmed to be one...

Edmonton mourns Humboldt Broncos lost in crash, while rooting for ... - Toronto Star

Thursday, April 12, 2018

The Canadian Press)After the crash, he knew where he needed to be: on Sunday, he jumped in a car with his mom to make the 500 kilometre drive to rejoin his former teammates at the hospital in Saskatoon.“It’s one of the closest [teams] I’ve ever been on,” he said, speaking to StarMetro from the road, adding that team mates had “clicked instantly” over a shared work ethic and love of the game. His January trade had made sense professionally, but personally, it’d been tough. “You look away from hockey for a minute when you get traded, and you think about all these buddies you’re not going to be with anymore, and it sucks and that was disappointing,” he said. Strong bonds are formed on the bus in particular, as teammates while away the countless hours on rural highways required to face off against other high level teams.“Guys will do karaoke and play cards and whatever and you watch movies and you’re talking about school — it’s when you have the heart to hearts,” he said.“I just want people to know, these guys deserved so much, they deserved the world. And to lose them right now is just tragic.”Jaxon Joseph, son of former NHL player Chris Joseph, was killed in the crash.The Edmonton native was “the guy that would gel the team,” lightening up the locker room mood with one-liners, said friend and former Surrey Eagles teammate Jeff Stewart, who played with Joseph on the Eagles during the 2015-2016 season.“He always had a smile on his face when he walked through the doors,” said Stewart, who remembers pre-practice pool tournaments with Joseph at his billet family’s home.Aerial footage shows the site of a bus crash near Tisdale, Saskatchewan, involving the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team. The crash killed 15 people. (The Canadian Press) Joseph was “never the fastest guy on the ice but he could definitely shoot the puck and he always knew his positioning super well,” Stewart said. The twenty-year-old was such a team player that Stewart credits him with helping him get a hockey scholarship.St. Albert’s Stephen Wack was remembered by friends as a towering 6 foot 5 inch defenceman who was also a talented videographer. He hoped to turn his eye for capturing the moment into a post-hockey career.“He honestly should have had his IQ tested, I mean he was a straight A-plus student. The guy had the world by the tail,” family friend Scott Held told StarMetro over the weekend. “His videos, they are outstanding.”Wack always looked out for his little brother, who was born blind, Held said, and made sure that Held’s son, who was five years younger, felt included and looked after.“It sounds cliché, but it couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy. Just a genuinely awesome human being.”Connor Lukan, a Broncos forward from Slave Lake, played with the midget St. Albert Raiders and Spruce Grove Saints in the Alberta Junior Hockey League before the Broncos.Tyson Chizma wrote on Twitter Lukan was “one of the best hockey players and an even greater guy off the ice.”Lukan’s former Spruce Grove Saints teammate Logan Hunter, from St. Albert, was also killed, as was Parker Tobin, from Stony Plain.

Atlantic to Europe from Longeueil, Quebec. Postings through the late 50s and early 60s saw him training the RCAF’s (and NATO’s) growing cadre of pilots in Portage la Prairie, Saskatoon and Gimli. His experience with accident investigation within the Flight Safety Directorate in Ottawa from 1965-68 helped initiate safety procedures that dramatically brought down the accident rate amongst new jet pilots. After a year’s study in Staff College in Kingston and operational training in Chatham and Cold Lake, Bruce Burgess returned to Europe, commanding 441 and 439 reconnaissance squadrons flying CF-104s in Germany and studying with the Royal Air Force Warfare College at RAF Manby in 1972. Returning to the Air Requirements Directorate in Ottawa from 1973-77, he helped shepherd the acquisition of the next generation of CF-18 (hornet) fighter aircraft. Highlights of his later career include Base Commander at CFB Comox (1977-80), Defense Attache in London (1980-82), Chief of Staff Air Force Operations, Winnipeg (1982-84) and Deputy Chief of Staff of Operations at Aerospace Defense Command in Colorado Springs (1984-87). He was awarded the Order of Military Merit in 1984, supplementing his earlier Special Service Medal (NATO-OTAN) and Canadian Decoration. He retired with Faith to Lancaster, Ontario in 1987. Bruce Burgess was a citizen airman who lived life with integrity, humility, humour, a strong sense of responsibility and a profound commitment to Canada. The warmth of his personality, his dedication to duty, his courage and his charm enriched us all. The funeral will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday April 7, 2018 at St. Andrew’s and Knox Church, 21102 Concession Road 2, S. Glengarry, Bainsville, Ontario.

Brockville area joins in mourning - Brockville Recorder and Times

Thursday, April 12, 2018

Organizations 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 was really that they were kids; they’re young kids,” said the mayor.“I think that’s what hits hard at most people.”(With files from Jonathon Brodie and Canadian Press) Let's block ads!

The crash killed 16 passengers and injured 13 others aboard the bus.The group created a Facebook event for the idea where they encouraged others to don their favourite jerseys and share a photo of it online with the hashtag #JerseysforHumboldt. The idea quickly caught on and politicians, celebrities, sports organizations, businesses, school boards, and many others in Canada and around the world have voiced their support and shared photos of their jerseys on Thursday. On Twitter, a quick search of the hashtag revealed thousands of posts sharing photos of jerseys and the hashtag was the top trending topic on the website as of Thursday morning. Jennifer Pinch, one of the co-organizers of the movement, told CTV News Channel that she’s surprised at how many people have joined in on the effort. “It really represents that the whole world is behind the victims in Humboldt, the families, the moms, the dads, the communities, they’re not alone,” she said on Thursday morning.
