Hockey Alberta remembers the life of Mr. Vern Davis.
Vern Davis was co-founder of Edmonton Minor Hockey Week and has volunteered in many aspects of hockey in Edmonton and the province for over 50 years.
In his goal to help children learn the game of hockey, Vern was the founding father of the “Little Richard” League in NW Edmonton which eventually became Initiation hockey. As a proud member of the Edmonton Minor Hockey Association Alumni, he assisted with raising funds for children and was instrumental in ensuring kids who were unable to play hockey for financial reasons had an opportunity.
Vern was named Hockey Volunteer of the Year by the Edmonton Oilers, he was inducted into the Sports Hall of Fame by the City of Edmonton, and Vern was recognized by Hockey Alberta as one of the 100 Centennial Award Recipients. These are just a few of his accomplishments over the years. Of all the numerous awards and recognitions bestowed upon him, he will be remembered most as a kind and gentle man who has left an indelible mark on our hearts and the hockey world in Edmonton.
Until we meet again our dear friend...
