We are saddened to hear of the loss of Dave Johnson. Dave and Bill Claringbold started ringette here in the Sault in 1982. Mr. Johnson coached house league along with tournament teams in the divisions 'tween', jr belle, belle, and deb, known to us now as U10, 12, 14, & 19. Mr Johnson coached many of us 'older' girls, along with his wife Pat (aka Mrs.J) who helped behind the bench. Dave's daughter, Davida, was our fellow team mate as well as eventually being one of our referees in the league. The entire family played a great role in the development of ringette here in the Sault. Dave and his family left the Sault and their involvement in ringette in 1993. Our thoughts go out to his family.
