RAWH would like to take a moment to remember a true patriot, Kurt VanHout of the ROC Brew Hockey Team.

Kurt was a long-time member of the team at Bill Gray’s Ice Arena.  On the ice Kurt was known as one guy you definitely didn’t want to collide with!  Off the ice you couldn’t find a gentler soul with a brighter perspective on life. When he gathered with the team it was obvious, he loved his family, enjoyed his friends, was dedicated to his work, and was lucky to have experienced many places around the world.  

Kurt was a part of our hockey family.  He was also an avid supporter of our country and those who have served it.  In honor of Kurt’s memory, the members of the Rochester Brew made a very sizable donation to the Rochester Americans Warriors Hockey program on behalf of Kurt - combining two of his interests.


To the members of the ROC Brew hockey and family of Kurt VanHout, we salute you and your dedication to the members of the veteran community.   Thank you from the bottom of our hearts and we will see you out on the ice.
