It is with sadness,respect, and gratitude that CMHA announces the passing of Irv Kostyniuk.
In 2016, CMHA , at the request of our Referee in Chief, changed our Most Promising Official award to a memorial award in Irv’s name. He and his family were in attendance attend the inaugural presentation of the award in his name.
From our RIC:
“Irv was a tireless workhorse where officiating was concerned even (even considering he did not have a child playing in CMHA and couldn’t skate!!!. He laid the foundation for many of the protocols and programs we use today in not only the lower mainland but BC Hockey. I was glad he was able to attend the inaugural naming of the award in his name and I do know he was extremely honoured and humbled by the recognition.
Both Dennis Marsden and I spent many hours working with Irv on his program here in CMHA and while he has been away from the program for many years, he will be missed"
