With heavy hearts we announce the passing of our friend and founder, Clark Gillies.

Clark was a beloved husband, father and grandfather. He loved his family with every ounce of his being.

He was a friend to everyone he met and made an impression on each of us, especially the Long Island community and the hockey world, as a Hall of Famer and 4-time Stanley Cup champion with the New York Islanders.

No one loved life more than Clark and we know he would want us to live on, laugh loudly, and continue his mission of raising awareness for pediatric cancer.

Per the family’s wishes, the memorial and interment will be private. If you wish to pay tribute to Clark, you can make a donation to the Clark Gillies Foundation here.

#9 in our hearts forever.
