HOLMES, Louis Charles January 29, 1911 - March 11, 2010 We sadly announce the passing of Louis Charles Holmes, at the Royal Alexandra Hospital, at the age of ninety-nine. Louis will be forever remembered by his children, Charles (Karla), Seattle, Washington; Gail (Walter) Plican, Vancouver, B.C. and Greg of Calgary, AB. He will remain in the hearts of his five grandchildren, their spouses and his five great-grandchildren. Louis is now with his loving wife "Buddy", who predeceased him in 1997. Louis gave freely and unselfishly to his family and they are grateful for his love, compassion,courage, wisdom and wonderful sense of humor, which he displayed all his life. The oldest NHL player will be scoring no longer and he will be remembered for his love of hockey and coaching the Waterloo Mercury's to a gold medal win for Canada in the 1952 Olympics in Oslo, Norway. The family thank all his caregivers at Miller Crossing, the doctors and nurses at the hospital and a SPECIAL thank you to his niece Jean for her caring attention over the last number years. At his request there will be no funeral or memoral service. In his memory donations may be made to the Alzheimer's Society of Alberta. UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN DAD, REST IN PEACE. WE LOVE YOU.
