With a heavy heart...
With a heavy heart, the Schomberg and King Township Minor Hockey Families mourn the loss of long time Coach, Volunteer, Leader and Friend, Fernando De Luca. Fernando’s loss cannot be put into words. In his many years of Coaching with our Organizations, he left a lasting impression in the lives of many families in our community, and touched the hearts of many young players.
As we pay tribute to his life and contributions, we would ask that all members of our close knit Minor Hockey Family send their thoughts and prayers to the De Luca family at this difficult time.
Coach Fernando, on behalf of all of the little Red Wings and King Rebels that you supported and taught over the years - we say a heartfelt thank-you.
Godspeed to you Coach, all of our next games will be played in your Memory and Honour.
The funeral arrangements for Coach Fernando are set out below:
