The Ontario Hockey League is saddened by the loss of former Peterborough Petes captain Bob Schnurr who passed away last week at the age of 63 following a 10-year battle with cancer.
A native of Kitchener, ON, Schnurr played parts of four OHL seasons between his hometown Rangers, the Peterborough Petes and the Kingston Canadians from 1974-78 before playing at the University of Western Ontario.
In his rookie season with the hometown Rangers, Schnurr recorded 14 goals and 22 assists.
He would compile 130 points (47-83–130) over a 178-game OHL career, serving as captain of the Petes during the 1976-77 campaign.
Schnurr is remembered for his love of family and spending time at the cottage. He leaves behind his wife Sue along with five daughters.
A celebration of life will be determined at a later date. In the meantime please consider donating to the Kitchener-Waterloo Humane Society or Canadian Cancer Society, in memory of a life well-lived and a man well-loved.
