OHL Mourns the Loss of Bob Schnurr

 

The Ontario Hockey League is saddened by the loss of former Peterborough Petes captain Bob Schnurr who passed away last week at the age of 63 following a 10-year battle with cancer.

A native of Kitchener, Ont., Schnurr played parts of four OHL seasons between his hometown Rangers, the Peterborough Petes and the Kingston Canadians from 1974-78 before playing at the University of Western Ontario. He put up 130 points (47-83–130) over his 178 game OHL career, serving as captain of the Petes during the 1976-77 campaign.

Schnurr is remembered for his love of family and spending time at the cottage. He leaves behind his wife Sue along with five daughters.

A celebration of life will be determined at a later date. In the meantime please consider donating to the Kitchener-Waterloo Humane Society or Canadian Cancer Society, in memory of a life well-lived and a man well-loved.
