I met Shane Phillipo last hockey season as I was coaching his son Douglas with the Beverly Bandits.I was always so impressed at his desire to contribute to the team.He was always willing to help out in any way he could.He loved being in the dressing room with the team.He was always a positive influence with our team and you could see he loved hockey and he was very proud of his son Douglas.

Shane was an inspiration to all of us as he was always in a good mood with a smile and liked to joke around.We could all learn from Shane as he never worried about the small stuff and he always had a good positive word for the team whether we won or lost!!!

I personally was very proud to know this man and I think that I am better person for it!!!

I wish the family all the best at this very sad time and I would like to let Douglas know that I along with the Beverly Bandits Pee Wee team from last year are thinking of him and sending him good thoughts and wishes.

Best Regards,Peter Mielzynski
