Guest Book Highlights

April 23, 2017 "My brother John Crawford attended Frank and Annis Stukus Byrnell Manor hockey school in Fenelon Falls in the late 60's and 70's. He has many fond memories of Milt. One of them was the times he would take our Mom, Marjorie for a skate during practice. My Dad was the Wonder Bread man for Byrnell and also loved him. RIP Mr. Schmidt, you were the best. " - Jerry Crawford (Pickering, ON)
February 14, 2017 "R.I.P Mr. Milt Schmidt I met Milt at two cards shows about 15 years a go. it was so cool to met him. it was so much fun to talk to great man. I have his autograph so cool!" - Andrew Szurley (South Yarmouth, MA)
January 20, 2017 "I was lucky to have met Mr. Milt Schmidt twice.
The first time, while waiting for the elevator @ the Garden, I told my friend, Amy, watch this. I walked up to Milt & his bride and said , Excuse me Ma'am but could I ask your date a question. She said to me, Young lady, this man has been my husband for over 45 years and yes, you may. I bold as all out, said are you Milt Schmidt and he was totally floored that I knew who he was.
The second time was a few years later after a great win by our beloved Bruins,again waiting for the elevator going down, my husband, me, Pie McKenzie and his bride, Beth (who I worked with)and Mr.Schmidt. He actually remembered me from the first time and I was so touched.
May he Rest In Peace." - Tammy Spinale (Lynn, MA)
January 17, 2017 "First time I met Milt was at the store Woody had in Needham with the Bauer reps Dick & Rich Igo. Woody would sharpen skates and Milt would tell great stories about Eddie Shore & others. Every time I heard the stories they got bigger & better. I used to drive out there from Revere just to bring coffee & listen. I would try to repeat the stories but nobody told a hockey story like Milt. A few times over the years I would speak with Gordie Howe & he said nobody told a story like Milt. But what was special about him most is he never complained about anything. Health, finances, family. He never complained and loved life. Thank you so much Milt, you are missed by everyone who's life you touched. Roger the Chef" - Roger Williamson (Revere, MA)
January 13, 2017 "I'm saddened to hear about Milt's passing & wish to extend my most heartfelt condolences to his family. I fondly recall our friendship from hockey & the RCAF. He was a heckuva player & true ambassador for the Bruins & the NHL. He'll be greatly missed & not forgotten. God Bless Him.

With Sympathy,
Jack Timmins (Ottawa native)
