Terry Trafford, a promising young hockey player from Weston, died last year, but dozens of people will come together this Sunday to celebrate him.
Trafford killed himself last year after he was cut from his OHL team for smoking pot. His body was discovered, after days of searching, in a Walmart parking lot.
This Sunday, a group of friends will meet at Weston Memorial, a school he attended, to celebrate Terry’s life and to raise money for charity. Last year, the same group raised more than $5000 for the Kids Help Phone.

A memorial hockey game will be held in Weston this weekend to remember Terry Trafford, the young man from Weston who took his own life in the winter. The event will be raising money for Kids’ Help Phone.
A number of community groups, teams, and individuals have donated to in memory of Trafford, and the Weston Minor Hockey League and a number of teams gave considerably. So far, they have raised nearly $2200.
The organizers hope to raise more money at the game with a charity raffle and barbeque.
The game, barbeque, and raffle will be this Sunday, May 11, starting at 10, in yard of Weston Memorial, which Trafford attended.
