The GTHL community deeply saddened by the passing Marlowe Stoudamire – a community leader and integral part of helping with the GTHL Transition Game summit in November of 2019. Stoudamire passed on March 24, 2020 in Detroit as a result of complications from COVID-19.
“This man was larger than life in many ways, both literally and figuratively,” said GTHL Executive Director and Chief Operating Officer, Scott Oakman. “He was the textbook version of an agent of change, with a superhero kind of aura about him.”
Stoudemire delivered an impassioned speech at the GTHL Transition Game, which focused on ways minor hockey could appeal to a larger and more diverse audience. Stoudemire had been working with the NHL as a consultant at the time of his passing. He was an admired and highly-respected citizen of Detroit where he worked as an advocate for the community.
Stoudemire is survived by his wife and two young children. He was 43-years-old.
