Founding member Earl McNeil passes away at 97

It is with profound sadness that we report the passing of Earl McNeil at the age of 97. Earl was a founding member of the Jr. B Falcons back in 1968 and served on the Board for many years. Earl was inducted into the St. Catharines Sports Hall of Fame in 2015.
Earl remained a life-long fan and pre-pandemic could often be seen at the Falcons home games.  He was always happy to help out with ceremonial puck drops for Remembrance Day or other special events.  In 2017 the Falcons Board of Directors honoured Earl by naming the Heart & Desire Award after him.
At this time, a service will not be held. A memorial for Earl is planned for a future date.
