From: Ann Lee Sweeten
Relation: I knew Gordon Gurski through minor hockey.

For Pat, Chad and Brent, and family of Gord Gurski: I cannot think of Minor hockey without thinking of Gord, and seeing him at the back of the stands, often with Jason’s Dad, keeping an eye on the game. Gordon was generous with his time and help, I recall many times his giving Jason a ride home, or to another town for a game, it was much appreciated then and now. He was a great example to the boys.
I hope you are all somehow finding a way to cope with this loss. Many thoughts, Ann Lee Sweeten.
