WICKMAN, Harold Edwin (January 17, 1926-August 20, 2005)
Harold passed away suddenly and peacefully in his 80th year, and will be dearly missed by family and Friends. On his last day he had the opportunity to spend it with many of those he loved at the Wickman family reunion, an event he never missed. He was the last surviving child of 14, born to Gustaf and Ida WICKMAN of Parry Sound who had originally emigrated from Finland in 1906. Harold was the proud father of Harold, Edwin, Shelley and Lonnie and loved by his six grandchildren Amanda, Christopher, Jason, Kenny, Sarah and Bradley, daughters-in-law Linda, Filomena and Virginia, and sons-in-law Ken and Scott. When you left suddenly that night All I could do was hold you tight I wanted to breathe the air back into you But it was an impossible thing to do "It's my turn" is what you would have said And to stop the crying in which we shed Dad I need to tell you something before you go I love you and that is all you need to know Lonnie A gathering to honour Harold will take place on Saturday, August 27th at 7 Coatsworth Avenue, Toronto (south of Danforth/Coxwell, off Hanson Street) in the community room. Open invitation from 1 to 4 p.m. (416-690-0026).

I Remember - Leo LABINE
Ron WICKS, a former National Hockey League referee, writes about Leo LABINE, whose obituary appeared on March 1.
By Ron WICKS, Monday, March 14, 2005 Page S9
I first met Leo LABINE in October of 1960, when I was a rookie linesman fresh out of the Sudbury Midget Hockey League. I was a buddy of Leo's teammate, Gerry TOPPAZZINI, so I had some credibility with the players. Leo was a great guy who had a lovely habit of irritating the star players on the opposing teams, and cause them to forget about scoring goals and, instead, would run around the ice trying to catch him. Rocket Richard was a favourite target. As you can imagine, there was no love lost. Back in the era of train travel, Boston would play in Montreal on a Saturday night, then both teams would travel to Westmount station and board the same train and go overnight to Boston to play round 4 the next night. Each team had their own sleeper car, but had to have breakfast together. Some mornings, I expected the fisticuffs to begin at 8 a.m., not 8 p.m. Some grudges never were resolved. About 10 years ago, Rocket Richard was refereeing an National Hockey League old-timers game in North Bay when Leo walked into the room and said, "Hi Rocket, how are you?" Maurice never looked up. "Fuck off," he mumbled and Leo kept right on going. Gilles Marotte told me he damn near fell over laughing.

I Remember -- John D'AMICO
By Ron WICKS, Wednesday, July 13, 2005, Page S9
Former National Hockey League referee Ron WICKS writes about John D'AMICO, whose obituary appeared on May 31.
I first met John in October of 1964 when he officiated his first game as a rookie linesman in Kitchener, Ontario I was his linesman partner. The referee, Frank UDVARI, said he was going to be a good one -- we joked that he would have my job within three weeks and I was soon sent to the American league as a referee. I returned to the National Hockey League in 1967 as a referee where I re-united with John and worked with him for about 20 years. John would hustle old hockey sticks and take them to kids at local hospitals (he also ran an Easter Seal Skate-a-thon at Ontario reformatories) and instructed at clinics around the world where he met such interesting people as a Russian referee who told him that, in Russia, the referee was "boss' and that linesman were "shit." That got John's attention. No player or coach ever gave a rookie referee a hard time when John was around.
