Passing of AYLA's Founding Father Rudie Schaefer

Aloha Rudie!

Good Morning friends,

It is with deep sadness that I report the passing of Rudie Schaefer last night at 7:44pm EST surrounded by family in Connecticut. The founder of AYLA and a patriarch of Hawaii lacrosse, Rudie left an indelible impact as a men's league player, lacrosse parent, coach, referree, and AYLA president for well over a decade since its founding in 2003. He will be greatly missed.

Please keep his family in your prayers as they go through this difficult time. We will share with you information regarding any future service/event planned in Rudie's honor.

Sincerely,

Grace
