Remembering Van Rea Jr. (1939 - 2014)

 

There are a number of local pioneers which Peoria Youth Hockey can thank for its existence, but who do not often get recognized for their contributions.   One of those is Adrian “Van” Rea Jr. who unexpectedly passed away on Friday, April 11, 2014.  Mr. Rea was involved with hockey as a coach for three decades – coaching at the outdoor Lakeview Rink and the Logan Ice Dome before becoming involved in laying the first sheet of ice at the Owens Center.  His son, Mike, has been a long time coach for PYHA and his grandson continues to play in the Squirt Travel division.

PYHA would like to thank Mr. Rea for his contributions to youth hockey in Central Illinois and express our condolences to his entire family.
