It is with profound sadness and a heavy heart that we share the news that Mark Gore, a long-time Illinois official, passed away on January 29, 2021.


Mark was an official, mentor, supervisor, and volunteer in the hockey community. His passion for our game and the friendships that Mark developed over the years will be everlasting. His dedication to our game was so in-depth that IHOA created the Mark Gore Service award. Mark’s son, Nick, was also an Official.
