In Memory of Blair Koop for his Kids

We are saddened to share of the passing of Blair Koop. As many of you know, he leaves behind three beautiful young children. Blair was an avid hockey lover whether it was with skates on his feet or behind the bench coaching his kids, who love the sport just as much as their dad. He also loved fishing and hunting and made sure to pass this passion onto his children as well.

We have started this page, in hopes that we can ease the financial burden of life, and ease the pressure of having to rush back to work, so their family can have time to grieve, together. Please consider supporting this young family during this difficult time. Their world has fallen out from beneath them, and as a community I hope we can raise them back up and give them some peace of mind over the next while. Blair would hope for his kids to continue on, like their world hasn’t been turned upside down. Your donation will ensure they can continue on with their love for sports, hunting and ensure their well being. Thank you so much in advance, from the bottom of our hearts, for any contribution you are able to make.

(if you do NOT want to have gofund me take any of the donation, in the area that says "tip gofund me services”, there is a drop down menu, please select “other” and enter zero as your amount. Your full donation will go to the cause)

An account has been set up at Scotia bank in virden, for those that are wanting to donate directly to that instead.
