  • Re: Union College: 2015-2016

    Dear Union Hockey Forum participants. I know many of you followed the posts of wholin1 over the years (less so in recent months). Sadly, he passed away on Monday night after a courageous battle with cancer. His devotion to Union Hockey and to his college (Class of '72) and the joy he took from both was contagious and inspiring. He will be missed but not forgotten. I know how much he enjoyed engaging with all of you and I think we'll all agree he stayed positive at all times. Godspeed to our loyal Union Hockey friend. A huge loss for us.

        My condolences on the loss of wholin1. At least he lived long enough to see a national championship at Union, something that was thought of as impossible back in 1991 when they made the jump. Not only one of the best Union posters on here, but one of the best posters in general. My condolences to his friends and family.

          Any chance we may move up some of the 2017-2018 recruits as well?
          I think only Kolias and Newhouse are coming in next season. Bennett mentioned two defensemen coming in on the coaches show last night, and I'm pretty sure those two are it. Last I knew, Ryan was going to do a year of juniors next year.

            His passing is a big loss for the Union hockey community. Aside from being one of the best contributors here, he was a vice president for the Garnet Blades. It was quite a shock when I heard of his passing on the coaches show last night.

              Really sad to hear this; I did have the chance to meet him. If SlyFoxMan still lurks, or you happen to see him, would you please pass along my sympathies?

                      Eternal rest grant unto Wholin1, O Lord. And let the perpetual light shine upon him. And may the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

                      Did not know him but the ultimate Gentlemen on this thread. Union fans, I am sorry for your loss.

                          BTW, Aspy, I am virtually certain that he was Jewish (from following his posts), so this may not have been the most appropriate prayer.
                          It's the thought that counts! My condolences to the Union Hockey family.
                          I've been lost since 1989. I got a breakaway on a frozen river and have been skating ever since.

                            Condolences to the wholin1 family, and the Union fans that knew him.

                            I had the pleasure of meeting him back in 2010 during the quarterfinal series (yes, the 5-OT game). A true gentleman here on the forum and in person as well. I've missed his level-headed posts for some time and wondered what had happened.
