NHL superstar Rod Brind’Amour and his family are mourning his father Bob today.
Bob Brind’Amour, father of Carolina Hurricanes captain and Stanley Cup winner Rod Brind’Amour, passed away yesterday in Campbell River, surrounded by friends and family.
Bob was a huge supporter of his son and the Hurricanes.
Don Waddell, President and General Manager of the Hurricanes, said in a statement that “Bob was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather who lit up every room he entered with passion, humor and energy. He kept working as a pipe fitter in Campbell River well into Rod’s NHL career and it’s clear he passed that relentless work ethic down to his children.”
Bob is survived by his wife, Linda, five siblings, three sons, and 10 grandchildren.
