Dear Members of the AYHA Community:
It is with a heavy heart that I share with you the passing of one of our hockey family members. Last night, Adam Lanoir passed away unexpectedly. Adam was a long time member of our hockey community and had a strong passion for the game. He played for AYHA as a child and as an adult, volunteered to coach various teams, including the current Squirt A team this year. Adam’s service and dedication to AYHA was invaluable. My sincerest, heartfelt condolences go out to Adam’s wife, Ann, his sons, Brodie and Reece, his parents and sister and friends within the hockey community.
In the coming days, the AYHA Board will determine the best way to honor Adam and his contributions to AYHA and to support his family through this difficult time.
So many of us are at a loss of words and overcome with emotions over the loss of one of the greatest and genuine people we have ever met. Adam Lanoir was taken away way too early while doing something he loved, playing hockey with the guys. Adam was an amazing and great family man. He coached his two sons on the Adirondack Youth Hockey 10U and 12U Travel Teams. We will miss our dear friend. So many of the area's hockey players had grown to know and love Adam for his humbleness and always willing to help attitude. Adam leaves behind a loving wife, Ann and two hockey playing sons. Our goal is to raise money to help Ann provide these growing boys with the hockey gear and costs they will need to carry on Adam's love of the game.
