Tom Graham (1957 – 2019) President of KMHA (2000 - 2019)

Tom has been involved in our Hockey community at all levels for more than 40 years. His dedication and concern for the youth of this community is unparalleled and he will be missed.

Tom began his Hockey journey with KMHA more than 40 years ago as a referee and coach. Like many others he was brought into the fold by Len Prang and Pat Doherty.  Here he began a mission that would be part of his life's work. He would change the landscape of Kitchener Hockey and leave an indelible mark on the City of Kitchener. Tom coached at all levels in Kitchener and on both the boys and girls side of the game, winning several provincial titles in the process. The amazing thing is that those championships were not his legacy. Rather the impression and changes he made on the people he was involved with were his story. Tom possessed a unique ability to make those around him stronger and better.  Tom used this gift to build an amazing family a strong hockey association that put people first, and a community that will never forget what he has given.
