West London Hockey supports fundraiser launched to support family of Tyler Coleiro, teen killed in car accident
Submitted By Brady Parr on Wednesday, October 30, 2019
The hockey community is rallying around the family of Tyler Coleiro, a teen who was killed in a car accident last week. Tyler Coleiro, 18, died following a two-vehicle collision near Komoka Friday evening. Just before 5 p.m. Friday, Strathroy-Caradoc police say they responded to the intersection of Glendon Drive and Amiens Road after receiving 911 calls for a serious motor vehicle collision.

Adam Stafford, a former neighbour of the Coleiro family from when they lived in Komoka, and his 12-year-old son Jack Stafford have helped launch a sticker fundraiser to honour the teen who made a lasting impression on his family.

"He was just an all around phenomenal kid, so kind, and outgoing with his friends, I just know he is going to be missed tremendously by everyone who would have known him,” says Stafford.

The helmet stickers read “Tyler 873,” with the 87 representing the number of his favourite player, Sidney Crosby, and the  representing the number 3 he wore playing hockey in Mt. Brydges. So far they’ve sold roughly 700 stickers, and 100 more are available before they will need to order more.

“The response has been overwhelming to be honest, everyone was so quick to offer help in any way they could,” says Stafford.

The Coleiro family have since moved to nearby Kilworth, but Stafford says the family, especial Tyler, will always have a special place in his heart.

London’s Source for Sports is producing the stickers. They are accepting donations of $5 for each sticker, with all proceeds going directly to the Coleiro family. Please join West London Hockey and show your support and order stickers for your team now.
