I am assuming that the University of Calgary, the oil industry, the Calgary Flames Hockey Club & his family are in mourning. After a valiant battle with prostrate cancer, Harley Hotchkiss died recently at the age of LXXXIII (83.) That is why my hockey style of introductory title is appropriate. Mr. Hotchkiss was a generous patron II the University of Calgary's Hotchkiss Brain Institute, & many other fine charitable endeavours. He led the Calgary Flames through tough times as an owner & was instrumental in bringing the team over from Atlanta & its Stanley Cup victory. He stuck with it through thick & thin, even saving it from bankruptcy. Mr. Hotchkiss has been loyal to the University of Calgary as well. His cash raising & donating efforts have let many scienific experiements & analysis be done II improve neurological functioning & aid in helping in the recovery of brain-injured persons.
Truly A Remarkable Country Gentleman,
