A LITTLE HISTORY
About Nazareth Community
The Nazareth Community remains dedicated to providing an environment that welcomes the forgotten,promotes social re-integration for the marginalized,and encourages all to find their potential. With additional low-cost housing we hope to continue the traditions of Nazareth House and remain a positive contributor to the well being of those who have lost their way
Our approach and methodology is recognized and respected as a preferred alternative to institutional care:helping those caught within the revolving door syndrome, or worse,the prospect of living on the streets-homeless.

I am currently retired, but still have my hands in many business ventures. I have been married to my wife Frances for 47 years, with three children, Tracey Lee; husband Greg, Randy with wife Sue, and Todd with wife Diane. I am blessed with nine grandchildren, five girls and four boys, my true” Hall of Fame”. I played Professional hockey for ten years, turning pro with the Montreal Canadiens in 1967 and played for several minor league teams as well as three NHL teams, Pittsburgh Penguins, Kansas City Scouts and Colorado Rockies. Post hockey I helped start the Lange and Micron skate companies and in 1984 started ITECH Sport Products and sold after twenty years to Mission Sports of California, at the time of sale Itech was the third largest hockey company in the world, behind Nike and Reebok. I am presently working with and serving on the Board of directors of several charities including Youth unlimited of Quebec, Executives available, Procure, for the awareness of Prostate cancer, Shriners annual golf tournament as Co-Chair, Father John Walsh’s annual celebrity golf tournament where proceeds go towards the funding of Nazareth House and this year Our New Anne’s house, serving on the Board for both, plus numerous speaking engagements for several other charities. Great to be retired.
