VANCOUVER – Former Vancouver Canucks coach and co-owner of the Vancouver Giants, Pat Quinn, has passed away at the age of 71.

In an announcement on their Facebook page, the Vancouver Giants said Quinn passed away Sunday night at Vancouver General Hospital after a lengthy illness.

“Words cannot express the pain we all feel today for the Quinn family,” said Giants majority owner Ron Toigo in the post. “Pat was an inspiration to all of us. He always said that respect was something that should be earned, not given, and the respect that he garnered throughout the hockey world speaks for itself. He will be sorely missed.”

Those wishing to send messages of condolence are asked to either email patquinn@vancouvergiants.com or send mail to the Giants’ offices at the address listed below.

"Vždycky jsem cítil ponížení, že musím do nějakých obskurních rubrik psát: národnost česká, když jsem Moravan, ne Čech. Moje vlast je Morava a žádné Čechy, a už vůbec ne infámní, hrůzné, bohorouhačské Česko, ten obludný výplod našeho zdivočelého, prohnilého, nekonečně zkorumpovaného, nestoudného, každou sebemenší hodnotu okamžitě špinícího, rozkládajícího, relativizujícího liberalismu."
