GWMHL founding member, former commissioner, and most passionate supporter Dave Atkinson passed away at his home in Washington on May 10, 2021. He was 57 and is survived by his wife and two sons.

Dave was a good friend to many in the APBA Hockey community and a linchpin of the NHL hockey disk team, devoting countless hours of his time to allow others to enjoy this hobby. It’s impossible to imagine this community without him. Dave’s passion, commitment, and rigorous standards may be unmatched in the APBA Hockey world. The GWMHL family misses him deeply. This league and, most importantly, the friendships we’ve formed through it stand as a tribute to his memory. Good travels, Big Dog.
