Our thoughts and prayers go out to you all at this very tough time.
Mr. Qupelli will be deeply missed. He was good friend. I loved speaking hockey with him and I know how much he loved watching all the grandkids do their thing. He would always laugh when I spoke to him in my best Italian.
" Mr. Qupelli you get that rink built for me yet." His reply " No yet, soon."

I know there is a rink in heaven sir. God bless you and all you amazing family.

Love you Mr. Qupelli.

Scott Campbellini ( He once told me this is my Itallian name. ) ♥️🙏♥️
