Patrick Schoonover passed away unexpectedly Friday November 14th 2014 at the age of 14.
Patrick and his Eastview teammates were playing in the Blue Ox Hockey Bantam AA Tournament in Brainerd MN. Patrick scored the game's 1st goal and collapsed moments later on the ice. 1st responders were unable to revive him. It was later determined Patrick had numerous heart defects that caused his early death.
Patrick was a fun loving teenager who is loved and respected by many. Patrick was a gentle giant. He was the "anti-bully" at school and stood up for those who could not. He made kids feel welcome with his smile and kindness. He was a great team mate and brought laughter and life to the locker room. He will forever be missed but never forgotten and his legacy will live forever through the Play For Patrick 96 memorial fund.
Patrick's heart condition was never detected during Drs. exams or physicals. The Schoonover family is working with the University of Minnesota Physicians Heart clinics to educate and inform families about heart defects and to help make Heart scans more accessible and affordable.
Patrick's passing stopped the world of Minnesota Youth Hockey November 14th 2014. It forever changed our lives and we hope we can reduce or eliminate sudden death due to heart defects and save other parents from the pain and anquish we are feeling.
