Elmira Enforcers pay tribute to "Flagman"
ELMIRA, N.Y. (WENY) -- The Elmira Enforcers and the community came together on the ice to pay their final respects to a lifelong hockey fan.
Pete Frank, also known as "Flagman", passed away last weekend. During the Friday's Enforcers game, a moment of silence was held in Frank's honor. Also, in his seat, sat an American flag where Frank would have cheered on the Enforcers. Before the game Frank's family was invited out on to the ice, and dropped the first puck in the game.
Frank's daughter, Alaura Hannan, said, "Tonight means everything to me and my family, my dad you know absolutely loved doing this and it meant the world to him. It's going to be a really sad moment, but a really happy moment as well because he would be really proud of this."
Friends and family of Frank are invited to visit the Walter J. Kent Funeral Home on Lake Street and Washington Avenue in Elmira from 2pm to 5pm Saturday.
