KVHA - In Memoriam

KVHA Members,

With much sadness and a heavy heart, I am writing to let you know that two amazing young ladies, former KVHA players, lost their lives in a fatal car crash Tuesday, February 6th.

Darian Locklear and Julianna Ward Brown were both former KV Ravens who many of us had the pleasure of knowing and coaching on their way to achieving their goal of playing Tier 1 Hockey.  Darian Locklear, from Brighton, and Julianna Ward Brown, from Howell, played on the 16U Meijer Tier 1 team and were on their way to practice Tuesday night when their car slid off the road and hit a tree.

Many of our KV families and coaches knew these girls since they were very young and watched them grow into great young women.  Both girls were genuinely kind, well liked by their peers, and very talented athletes.  And both of their families are as caring and loving as any.  I know both girls would have gone on to do some very special things, well beyond hockey.  It is simply a tragedy, and very hard to process for adults, let alone our children.  Be sure to hug yours a little longer today.

While hockey is what brings us together, it's the players and families we know and love along the way, in this very tight community, that really mean everything.  The KVHA Ravens and KVHA are sending floral arrangements to both families on behalf of our membership.

Services for Darian will take place at Phillips Funeral Home in South Lyon.  Saturday visitation is 4-9pm.  Sunday Funeral Service is at Phillips Funeral Home at 10:30am.  Services for Julianna will take place at MacDonald's Funeral Home in Howell.  Sunday visitation is 2-8pm.  Monday Funeral service is at 10:00am, St. Agnes Catholic Church in Fowlerville.

Both Darian and Julianna will be truly missed and never forgotten.  And as we've all come to know in both good times and in sad times;  Once a Raven, Always a Raven.
