It is with deepest regret that the Peterborough Petes announce the passing of Alumni member Lorne O’Donnell (1960-63).  Mr O’Donnell passed away suddenly this week following a work out in Peterborough. Lorne O’Donnell would have turned 69 next month.

Lorne’s son Steve worked as the teams Marketing Manager in the early 1990’s.

Visitation and Funeral arrangements have yet to be announced by Mr. O’Donnell’s family.
