Celebration of life for Oilers superfan Ben Stelter

"We lost a little boy who displayed nothing but courage on a daily basis, he was able to inspire a team and a city and he had the support of everybody in Northern Alberta and across the country"


A celebration of life for Edmonton Oilers superfan Ben Stelter will be held Friday, and hockey fans hoping to show support for the heroic cancer fighter can attend virtually.

On Friday morning, a procession will also allow the public to say farewell.

It will leave Park Memorial Funeral Home on 111 Avenue and 97 Street at 10 a.m., driving south to Rogers Place.

Along 104 Avenue under Ford Hall, fans are invited to gather and wave goodbye to Ben.

Ben posters will be handed out by the Kids with Cancer Society to the first thousand people, who are all asked to arrive by 9:45 a.m.

The Celebration of Life will be held on Friday at 11:30 AM, and will be livestreamed at hopecity.ca/stream.

Donations in memoriam may be made to the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation.
