KMHA says Tom Graham, the association's president for the last 19 years, has passed away.
"Our deepest sympathies are with his family at this difficult time. We mourn with you." said General Manager Rolland Cyr, in a post on the KMHA website.
"His dedication and concern for the youth of this community is unparalleled and he will be missed." he added.
Graham started his journey with KMHA as both a coach and referee, taking on the role of president in 2000.
Cyr says Graham's legacy will be the impression and changes he made on the people he was involved with.
