February, 18, 2008

“Windsor Spitfire Captain Mickey Renaud suddenly collapsed at his Tecumseh home and was transported to Windsor Regional Hospital with absent vital signs. All attempts were made at resuscitation and were unsuccessful at the emergency room,” commented Windsor Spitfires Team Physican Dr. Roy Diklich.
