Hank Goldup, a member of the Maple Leafs 1942 Stanley Cup winner, has died at the age of 90.
Goldup died in his sleep Sunday morning at a Mississauga long-term care facility.
It was a rich life for a man described by his children as a ‘gregarious extrovert.’ Goldup reached his goal of living to the age of age of 90. He was predeceased by his Margaret with whom he enjoyed eight children. Goldup was able to golf until the age of 85.
“He contributed to the community in many ways,” the family said in a release, “from charity Christmas drives to coaching.”
Goldup was a sniper who played left wing for the Leafs from 1939 to 1943. He scored 29 goals and recorded 63 points in 99 games. In all, Goldup scored 63 regular season goals and five playoff markers with the Leafs and New York Rangers.
