Tribute – Sam Egleston (E-Division)

Tribute – Sam Egleston (E-Division)

To all of the membership, teammates and friends in E division, we recently lost Sammy. It has been difficult for many to look down the bench or across the dressing room and not see someone who has been a part of our lives for the past 4 years in the league, and in many cases a friend since childhood. Sammy always had a smile on his face and you could be sure to hear a quick witted comment on or off the ice. Your day got better if Sam was around. That’s just the way he was.

In his memory we will be wearing a sticker on our helmets as a reminder that life is fleeting, that we should never take things for granted and to look after one another. The E Division teams have also taken up a collection and donated to the Canadian Mental Health Association in respect of Sam’s family wishes.

Sam probably put it best – “Remember me for my love for my family and friends, my sense of humor, and my love for sports and music. Keep our memories positive and remember the good times.”

We miss you Sammy! You will always be PPG SE.
