Former Leafs and Bruins defenceman (and former Bruins captain) and Hall of Fame member Fernie Flaman has passed away:


Mods - You might want to copy this to the Bruins board as I am sure some of their members might be interested in this.

RIP Fernie

In Memoriam of a Wonderful Man
Fernie Flaman who died Friday night at age 85 was known to the world as a superb defenseman, award winning coach and a scout for the New Jersey Devils.
Fernie played with the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Boston Bruins and was their captain in 1955 and served as such for the rest of his NHL career. As Northeastern University men's hockey coach he led them to win the Beanpot championship four times (1980, 1984, 1985, and 1988)
He was inducted into the university's Hall of Fame and the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1990. He inducted into the Massachusetts Hall of Fame in 2011.
But Fernie Flaman was so much more to those who knew him. He was as honest, hardworking, and loving a husband and father as he was a hockey star on the ice. He was a man who sought perfection in all he did even cooking the perfect Roast and being a host of a dinner party.
Holidays at his home were filled with laughter and good food which was often supervised by Fernie in the kitchen with his devoted and loving wife Jeanie working like a award winning team. Jean and Fernie were rarely apart from each other and their children came first before all else.
One of the qualities I admired most in Fernie was his humility; He rarely boasted about his Stanley Cup Championships and had to be prodded to show the championship rings he had acquired. He tried to avoid the spotlight but would acquiesce to public appearances if it would further the interest in Hockey among young people.
Fernie Flaman was the kind of role model a sports hero should be, humble, generous, honest, reliable and most of all a dedicated husband and father and grandfather and friend.
I know God has welcomed him into the heavenly home he has prepared and that he has joined his son who went home to God many years ago.
