Yesterday was a day of celebrating a special life. Marty “Mustang” McKnight has been a familiar face in Colorado hockey scene for decades. Hundreds gathered at the Ice Centre at Promenade to honor a great man. Marty was a player, a coach, a teammate, a captain, a leader and a friend. There were hugs, there were tears, there were cheers, there were toasts, but mostly there was love for a man that connected hundreds of lives! A special thanks goes to the Promenade and Benders as both opened their doors and hearts to help make this a tribute to remember. Here’s you Marty McKnight (#44), you’ll be dearly missed.
It is another very difficult day for Colorado hockey as we say “goodbye” another important piece of our community, Marty McKnight. The Mustangs captain passed doing what he loved most, playing hockey with his beloved teammates. A husband, a father, a military veteran and a friend of many, Marty founded the Mustangs in 1992 and has worn the “C” ever since. #44 and his crew have been an integral part of Dawg Nation playing every Dawg Bowl since 2015 and always supporting our events and recipients, including fellow Mustangs Andrew Allen and Dave Carr. Now it’s time to support Marty’s heartbroken family and teammates. Please join us in offering our deepest condolences to the McKnight and Mustang families.
