Obituary for Sergei V. Tchekmarev

Sergei V. Tchekmarev died unexpectedly February 19, 2021. He was 65 years. Sergei was born October 7, 1955, in Moscow, to Nadezhda Gerasimova and Vladimir Tchekmarev.

Affectionately known as “Cheeka”, he had served as massage therapist for the Detroit Red Wings organization since 1998. Before Detroit, he had worked with San Jose, Swiss Lugano, and CSKA Moscow. From 1982 to 2002, he intermittently worked with the national teams of the USSR, the CIS and Russia, during which he won three Olympic gold medals and four world championships. A devoted husband, father, brother, and friend to many people, he was deeply loved and will be sorely missed by all.

He is survived by his beloved wife, Olga, his daughter, Alexa, and his brother, Igor.

Service and burial will be private.
