Putnam, an Irondequoit resident, played on the Maksymum Jr. team. He died July 7 of meningococcemia, a severe bacterial infection in the bloodstream. He was 16.
His parents, Lindsay and Shannon, created the foundation in their son’s memory to assist families that are facing life-altering circumstances with things like youth hockey registration fees. The foundation also raises awareness about meningitis.
