Blackhawks Mourn Passing of William Wirtz

Some sad news to report this morning:

It is with deep sorrow that the Chicago Blackhawks announce that team President, Mr. William W. Wirtz, 77, passed away early Wednesday morning at Evanston Hospital after a recent battle with cancer.

Mr. Wirtz is survived by his wife, Alice, five children, Rocky, Gail, Karey, Peter and Alyson, and seven grandchildren.

Mr. Wirtz (pictured right) will be missed and my deepest sympathy's go out to his family.
