Grandchildren as well as his sister Jean Edwards (91 years young) and
Moe started his life in Regina, Saskatchewan March 23, 1928,
the youngest in his family. Moe's passion was sports including hockey
and golf. Hockey became his primary focus. He first played with the
Regina Abbotts as a Junior Hockey player (1942-1945), then the Regina Pats
assumed the franchise (1946-1947).
He turned professional with the
Boston Bruins organization and played for the Tulsa Oilers 1948-1951
then the Tacoma Rockets 1951-52. During that time he suffered one of his
many major concussions that included a stick hit to his right eye
leading to loss of sight.
In the fall of 1952, he went to Trail as
playing coach of the Smoke Eaters where he stayed until 1955. In 1956 he
moved to Kelowna to join the Packers and stayed with them until 1959.
He was one of the major team members during the Packers' eight game
tour of Sweden and Russia in November 1958.
In1958 the Kelowna Packers
won the Western Canadian Championship and made it to the Allan Cup
Finals placing runner up to the Belleville McFarlands. Due to the
overall achievement in 1958, the Kelowna Packers were selected to carry
Canada's name in the International Hockey Exhibitions in Sweden and
Russia in November 1958. They were the first Canadian team to play
Canada's national game in Russia. And the Packers won the tournament!
Moe won many awards during his hockey career. He was second in the WHL
total points race in his final year with the Packers in 1959. He won the
Most Valuable Player award in 1952 and 1953, and was coach of the WHL
all-star team while he was in Trail. The Fans of Trail wanted him so
badly a public subcription
was taken up to buy his contract from Boston while he was still in
When Brian Roche went east to play hockey halfway through the
1960-61 season, Moe took over the Kelowna Junior Buckaroos as coach and
lead the league to the final against Kamloops. In November 2008, Moe
along with his 1958 Kelowna Packers teammates were the first team to be
nominated and selected by the Sports Legacy Committee to the Central
Okanagan Sports Hall of Fame Museum in the Team category.
During his off
season in 1951, Moe won the position as captain of the Willingdon Cup
Golf team for Saskatchewan held at the Royal Ottawa Golf Club. Moe was
also the non-playing captain of the BC Willingdon Cup gold team in 1953.
Moe always felt one of the highlights of his golfing career was playing
with Stan Leonard on his Regina Tour at the Wascana Golf and Country
When Moe arrived in Kelowna in 1955-56 he joined the Kelowna Golf
and Country Club with a 2 handicap. He went on to win the
Low Interior Amateur in 1958, the Ogopogo Open and then won the Kelowna
Golf and Country Club Open Championship in 1963. Moe was president of
the Kelowna Golf and Country Club 1963-1964.
Moe had many varied
experiences in both work and travel. He sold cars
winning the Master Salesmanship Award in BC in the middle 1950s, and
was the Sports Director and Local Sales Manager for CHBC, including the
nightly sports report. He also tried his hand at being his own boss.
Above all he valued his family.
We will all carry many happy memories of
his keen sense of humor and welcoming home, especially in his many
happy years with his amazing wife, Sheila. Moe's family thanks Dr. M.
Bobyn for amazing support and to all the wonderful caring folks who
looked after Moe at the Good Samaritans Mountainview Village Care home
in Kelowna. In keeping with Moe's wishes there will not be a funeral.
Moe's immediate family will be gathering at a later date to share many
happy stories. In lieu of flower please feel free to make donations to
Alzheimer's research or charity of your own choice. Condolences may be
sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com 250-860-7077.
