Memorial for Derek Skutnik

It is with great sadness I share with you that one of our hockey coaches and friend to many, Derek Skutnik, has unexpectedly passed away.   Derek is survived by his wife, Lori, and their three children.  Derek was a hockey coach in Arizona for several years.  Family was what mattered most to Derek.  He was able to share his passion for hockey with his twin sons on the ice.  Derek was a huge supporter of  his daughter as she excelled in gymnastics. All of us whose lives he touched are saddened by his loss and Derek's contagious smile will be forever missed.

For those of you who wish to help the family in any way, please contribute what you can for Derek's three children.  Thank you for all of your kind words, thoughts, and prayers.  Your contribution and support is beyond appreciated.
