The Passing of our Friend Pat Bernico

By, 01/09/18, 5:15PM CST


It is with heavy hearts that we inform you of the passing of Pat Bernico.

Pat was the loving husband of Laura and father of Tony who is one of the goalies on our Bantam 4 team.  Pat was also a 24 year veteran, of the Chicago Police Department.

Pat was recently (Thanksgiving) diagnosed with inoperable and terminal, Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer.  He passed away on Sunday.

In order to honor him, there is an event taking place on January 28th at Canlan.  Friends of Tony have gathered a team of hockey players from area clubs and will be playing the CPD Stars team in a benefit game for the Bernicos.

You can visit the site below to see the commemorative custom Jerseys that they'll be wearing.  The jerseys are also available to purchase for spectators on that site.

Please keep Laura and Tony in your prayers through this difficult time.  Funeral arrangements can be found here:
