So sorry to hear of Ken's passing this morning. Ken, Colin & Ray, who owned the club, were wonderful people to work for, and with, during my one season in Fort Wayne. Ken knew the landscape of the league behind the scenes, knew his players and knew the opponents extremely well. It was almost a complete recipe for success, and made my job as the coach, a pretty simple one.

My very deepest condolences to the Ullyot family. 

To find the words which express my gratitude and describe his courage and determination to provide, and to save hockey for Fort Wayne ( and an entire league), is impossible.

I'm not sure I could count the hours of enjoyment this man has provided for me, and my family, through Fort Wayne hockey in particular,  and the game of hockey in general.

Alan, I think you just expressed this about as well as anyone can. Well said.   I cannot add anything except my prayers.
