In Memory of Mr. Peter J Lynch Sr.
Earlier this week, the local hockey community lost an icon. Peter Lynch passed away Monday, January 13th at the age of 83.   Mr. Lynch was a pillar of the hockey community here in St. Thomas, and was very influential in the early years of minor hockey. Most minor hockey dads, and even grandfathers, can remember Mr. Lynch’s face around the Northside or Memorial Arenas on cold Saturday mornings setting out the jerseys for an early morning game.  

Mr. Lynch’s tenure as a volunteer started in the mid 60’s, primarily organizing the house league program, and continued through the 80’s. His countless hours at the rink passing on his love of the game epitomizes the true meaning of a selfless volunteer.

After more than 20 years as a St. Thomas Minor Hockey board member, Mr. Lynch was honoured as STMHA’s first lifetime member. A title he proudly wore on his St. Thomas Minor Hockey Jacket.

Even in the past few years when he stepped away from his hockey duties, Mr. Lynch would often stop kids he saw in the community wearing Junior Stars jackets to ask them how the season was going. He was always genuinely interested in their responses.

It’s with great sadness that we say goodbye to a tireless volunteer, an advocate for young hockey players, and a pillar in our hockey community.

STMHA wishes to offer our condolences to Mrs. Lynch and the Lynch family.

We have lost a true friend in our hockey community.
