It is with heavy hearts and profound sadness that we mourn the sudden passing of our dear friend and former Assistant Captain, Craig Spence.

Craig was more than just a stellar athlete on the ice; he embodied the essence of what it meant to be a genuine and wonderful human being. His presence graced not only the rink but also the lives of everyone fortunate enough to know him. As a leader, Craig went beyond the call of duty both on and off the ice. His commitment to excellence was matched only by his unwavering dedication to our Chatham-Kent community. Whether lending a helping hand during the Beast Buddies last paddle of the season or simply illuminating the room with his infectious smile, Craig's impact was immeasurable.

Our thoughts and prayers extend to his beloved family, cherished friends, teammates, and coaches during this incredibly difficult time. May they find solace in the countless memories of Craig's outstanding motivation, skill, thoughtfulness, and that radiant smile that could brighten even the darkest of days. Craig's legacy will forever be etched into the fabric of our organization. He will always remain a beacon of inspiration, reminding us to strive for greatness both on and off the ice.

#10 Forever a Maroon, Craig Spence will live on in our hearts.
