  • Ken Brod - 1999

Ken Brod was born in Wausau and spent most of his life in Mosinee, first as a player and later in the  promotion and building of the sport of hockey in his community.  His love of the sport includes playing with the Mosinee Papermakers on four state championship teams in 1949, 1957, 1960 and 1965.

From 1976-1986, Brod served on committees to help with the fund raising and  construction of the Mosinee Rec Center and the installation of artificial ice in the facility.  Brod than served nine years on the board of directors of the Mosinee Hockey Club and six years as the club’s president, overseeing all aspects of the hockey program in Mosinee, as well as the operation of the Rec Center during the winter months

Brod formed the Mosinee Rec Center Building Fund in 1992 and became the original chairman of this committee. The building fund committee was responsible for $600,000 of improvements to the Rec Center, including enclosure of the building and an addition to the facility which includes locker rooms and a mechanical room, as well as  enlargement modernization of the concession area.

Promoting the sport of hockey by keeping the cost down for all players has been one of Brod’s accomplishments.  He formed a group of senior citizens to clean and do minor maintenance in the building which has allowed the Mosinee Hockey Club to keep the cost of skating and playing hockey at one of the lowest levels in the State of Wisconsin.

Brod was instrumental in keeping hockey together in Mosinee and has passed the tradition of hockey down in his own family, with his son and son-in-law playing youth and senior hockey, and now with two grandsons in the program.  His contribution to the sport of ice hockey also includes playing a key role in the addition of the junior varsity program to Mosinee High School.
