Albert “Mr. Hockey” was a fixture of Dunnville Minor Hockey not for years but generations. Even though he worked fulltime at John Deere Welland for over 46 years he gave freely of his time to help foster and promote sports in Dunnville. Albert was the first to insist he could not do it alone but with the help of his loving wife Alice. Albert was The OMHA Man of the Year in 1981, received many awards and honours including the first inductee to the Dunnville Sports Wall of Fame. With all of his accomplishments the one he treasured the most was his family who gave him the most pride and joy.
