Support the Loche Family

Please be generous to the Loche Family.

Last week, long time Sharks coach, Chris Loche, unexpectedly passed away from complications arising from the Covid-19 corona virus. He is a great coach and mentor to many hockey players. He always made time to help, guide, and encourage his players both on and off the ice. Words simply cannot express the devastating loss we are all feeling. He was 49 years old and one (1) day shy of his 50th birthday.

Over the last few days, we have seen an amazing outpouring of love from the hockey community and those near and far who knew, played with, played for or otherwise knew and loved Coach Chris. He is survived by his two (2) children; his son Ryan (20) and his daughter Kaitlyn (16). Ryan attends SUNY Binghamton and Kaitlyn attends St. John the Baptist High School.

A GoFundMe page was started to assist Ryan and Kaitlyn in meeting their school and home expenses. Please keep the Loche family in your prayers and please consider making a generous donation to help this wonderful family keep going. The GoFundMe page can be found at this LINK.

Please stay home, stay safe and be healthy!
