Former Brandon Wheat Kings' owner and manager Jack Brockest passed away last Thursday at the age of 84.

Brockest was involved with the team from 1975 to 1983, and was instrumental in helping put together Brandon's dominant teams of the late 1970's, including the '79 squad that lost in the Memorial Cup Final.

A celebration of Brockest’s life will be held at Central United Church in Brandon on Tuesday afternoon.
