The greater glory of a former National Hockey League player turned Flying Father
By Roy MacGREGOR Wednesday, December 11, 2002 -- Print Edition, Page A2
Statistics, they say, don't tell the whole story.
In Les COSTELLO's case, they barely touch it.
The one he picked up yesterday will complete a 74-year run: Feb. 16, 1928, to Dec. 10, 2002.
The National Hockey League record book will say, equally forever: one season, 15 games, two goals, three assists -- but even here the numbers will cover only a small portion of Les COSTELLO's remarkable story.
He played but part of one year after having come up, a scrawny 158-pounder from South Porcupine, Ontario, to join the Toronto Maple Leafs for the 1948 Stanley Cup playoffs. Just turned 20, he would score two goals and two assists in only five playoff games to help the Leafs to the Stanley Cup as the best hockey team in the world.
He played with Teeder KENNEDY, Howie MEEKER and Syl APPS, and might have played for years had he not simply packed up his equipment in the spring of 1950 and left for the seminary, certain he would rather be a priest than a player, a young man in search of quite different glory.
Some said he could have been a great one.
Yesterday, when Les COSTELLO died in Toronto -- having been in a coma since falling on the ice a week earlier in a charity hockey game -- they said he had indeed become a great one.
I will not pretend to have known him well. My only acquaintance with him, oddly enough, was on the ice, though he last played in the National Hockey League the year I was born. But twice, once in 1983, and then again a few years ago, I was lucky enough to be on the ice opposite the Flying Fathers, the madcap, charming and yes, highly talented -- hockey team that Reverend Les COSTELLO helped put together in the early 1960s to raise money for charity.
In 1983 that cause was the Jocelyn Lovell Trust Fund. LOVELL, an Olympic cyclist, had been run off the road by a dump truck while training and would never race again. National Hockey League hall-of-famer Ken DRYDEN helped launch a campaign to raise money for the injured athlete and had combined a number of former hockey stars -- among them Gordie HOWE, Andy BATHGATE, Paul HENDERSON, Frank MAHOVLICH and Eddie SHACK -- with some oddball additions that included artist Ken DANBY, lacrosse legend Jack BIONDA, a certain sports media hack and, as coach, broadcaster Peter GZOWSKI.
Contrary to expectations, however, the old hockey greats were not the stars of the game. That belonged, almost exclusively, to Les COSTELLO and his madcap, slapstick hijinks. Perhaps you had to be there but, rest assured, the funniest person on the ice was not Mr. SHACK and the slickest not Mr. BATHGATE. Les COSTELLO might even have been more physical than Mr. HOWE. And just for the record, he did not take the Lord's name in vain during the game. He did, however, use just about every other method of swearing.
What was astonishing about that game was that Les COSTELLO had only recently learned to skate again. A few winters earlier he had become lost in the bush while hunting and lost all but two of his toes to frostbite.
No one remembers the score of that long-ago game, but all who were there remember the good-hearted Costello, his continual laughter, his bag of tricks -- and the cheque for $30,000 he and Ken DRYDEN turned over to Jocelyn LOVELL that night.
They talk about the importance of heart in hockey, but some of those who leave the game behind have even bigger hearts. Les COSTELLO returned to Northern Ontario, where he became a legend of a different sort in Schumacher, close by Timmins and his boyhood home of South Porcupine. He kept up his connections to hockey through younger brother Murray, who played several years in the National Hockey League and later served as president of the Canadian Hockey Association, and also with his Flying Fathers, who became to hockey what the Harlem Globetrotters have always been to basketball.
He was renowned as a priest for his terrible jokes, and insisted on leading off his weekly sermons with one -- at times being less than discretionary in his choice of opener. But if he was unpredictable in behaviour, he was totally predictable in reaction: If anyone needed help, he would be there for them. He set up a mission and gave out food and furniture to those in need. The rectory door at St. Alphonsus was never locked. There was always room at the inn, no matter what a person's faith or lack of faith.
"My philosophy is simple," he once said. "Bring happiness and joy into the lives of everyone you meet.
"Not a bad philosophy, I figure."
Not bad at all.
And, oh yes, one more statistic just to round things out.
Amount raised for charity: $4-million.

Dr. SWARTZ owned a condominium in Toronto, where he was visiting when he died, and his main home was on Middle Bass Island, where he passionately enjoyed living for almost 40 years, with an 8 acre land parcel there and he was underway putting another home there this summer. That was his little heaven on earth, though he couldn't stay put too long anywhere, he loved seeing all parts of the world. He also had a hangar/condo with his airplane in Streetsboro, Ohio, where he practiced until just a couple of years ago. He was born on March 23, 1938, in Bellevue, Ohio, to Donald SWARTZ and Marabelle (STRECKER) SWARTZ.

A man with many interests, he also developed businesses in Charter Fishing, Christmas Tree Farm, and two phases of Campground/Resort Owner-Manager. He saw things that could be, and took action to make things happen. Though retired from his practice, he continued being a visionary, and wanted to develop and add life, always moving forward, not dwelling on the negative, only seeing the positive aspects. He loved to fly, though afraid of heights, and was a pilot, with membership in the American Pilots Association. Ted set goals and then accomplished what he set out to do. He flew his plane to South America, to Chelan, Washington, and many others places, crossing those things off his ''To Do'' list. He enjoyed both Power and Sail Boating also, and was a member of the Mimico Cruising Club, Toronto, in recent years. He was extremely active, and enjoyed participating in many indoor and outdoor sports - handball, snow and water skiing, scuba and snorkeling, jet skiing, bicycling, swimming, etc. Survivors include his wife, Helena Cecylia (KADLUBOWSKA) Krajewski SWARTZ, whom he married October 12, 2002.

Beloved priest's life comes full circle
Last respects paid at hockey arena where it all began
Kate HARRIES Ontario Reporter
Timmins--He was loud and plain-spoken and larger than life.
He was a man's man who could face down the most combative miner in this rough northern community.
And he was a priest who drew on a bottomless well of compassion and tenderness to comfort the disadvantaged and oppressed.
Yesterday, with tears and laughter, 2,000 people said farewell to Reverend Les COSTELLO in a mass celebrated at the local hockey arena.
It was full circle for the former Toronto Maple Leaf, who skated away from fame to join the priesthood and found fame of a different sort when he co-founded the madcap Flying Fathers hockey team that toured the continent and raised more than $4 million for charity.
"There's an irony in how this whole thing happened, you know the game got him going in life and it was the game that brought him down," his brother Murray, also a former Maple Leaf and ex-president of the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association, told the crowd.
COSTELLO died a week ago today from a head injury suffered in a fall during a pre-game warmup in Kincardine on November 30. He played again in Peterborough but felt unwell and was taken to St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto. He was 74.
The venerable McIntyre arena, the scene of yesterday's funeral service, was the focus of much of his life. It was just down the road from his parents' home in the South Porcupine area of Timmins and a stone's throw from St. Alphonsus Church in the Schumacher neighbourhood, where he served as parish priest for 23 years.
This is where his hockey career started when, as a lanky 16-year-old with the Holman Pluggers, he helped win an Ontario juvenile trophy. This is where he skated almost every week to the end of his life.
Some 20 members of the Flying Fathers -- both priests and lay players -- travelled north from all over Ontario to pay their respects. A dozen of them sat in a row behind the coffin.
Rev. Donald " Swede" MacLEAN of Aurora celebrated the mass and Rev. Tim SHAY/SHEA of Kingston gave the eulogy.
Arden ARMSTRONG of the St. Alphonsus choir played "What a friend we have in Jesus" on his trumpet. "Father Les loved the trumpet in church," ARMSTRONG confided afterwards.
When it was over and they all filed out, Reverend Vaughan QUINN, madcap goalie for 26 years, gave the coffin a farewell knock in the same way Costello used to encourage Friends and parishioners with a cheerful pat on the back.
"Please be joyful," Quinn had said the night before, during visitation at St. Alphonsus, where Costello lay in an open coffin for two nights, flanked by an Ontario Provincial Police guard of honour. "(Les) is the last person to want a bunch of moping faces looking back at him."
Hockey greats like former Maple Leafs Dickie DUFF and Gus MORTSON, and Pete BABANDO, once of the Boston Bruins and Detroit Red Wings, showed up, as did religious luminaries like Monsignor John MURPHY of the archdiocese of Toronto, and Timmins Bishop Pat MARCHAND.
After the mass, there were drinks and sandwiches upstairs, where Friends reminisced.
How long was the drive from Kingston, Shea was asked. "One thousand memories long," he replied, as two vanloads of people from eastern Ontario spent the long hours on the road regaling each other with oft-told tales that lost none of their appeal -- like the time at an audience in Rome, they presented a hockey stick to Pope Paul 6th and Costello tried to show His Holiness how to hold it, "or they'll think you're stirring spaghetti."
Others had stories to share.
Costello is an Irish name, and his cousin, Reverend Jack COSTELLO of Sacred Heart parish in Windsor, fondly recalled trips the two made to Ireland. "You could truly tell it was Father Les's ancestral home because he fit right in wherever he went. He loved to talk and the Irish love to talk."
As family and Friends gathered for a quiet prayer at St. Alphonsus yesterday morning, before a procession to the arena, Reverend Bill SCANLAN of Richmond Hill, one of the mainstays of the Flying Fathers, said, "Costy was a gift to Lord knows how many people.
"We realize that more now than when he was around because he bugged us sometimes," SCANLAN said, looking down at the open coffin.
"God bless. It's the first time I've seen him quiet."
