It is with heavy hearts that we learn of the passing of Dan “Tixie” Hannigan, who has been running the skate sharpening shop at the McIntyre Arena for at least 25 years.
Tixie was well-known, not only in the hockey scene, but throughout the City of Timmins, as a generous and iconic member of our community.
To honour and pay respect to this wonderful man, the City of Timmins has decided to lower the flags at the McIntyre Community Centre for the next three days. We would like to extend our deepest sympathies to Tixie’s family and friends during this difficult time.
