“Happy Joe” was one of our youth hockey coaches and Glacier Hockey League players. He loved being a part of our hockey community and his smile and enthusiasm endeared him to everyone at the rink. We lost Joe on December 20 to complications from the flu. Here are the ways you can remember Joe, honor his involvement with our programs and help his family with this sudden loss:
