Michigan hockey icon Gale Cronk passes away at age 89

FENTON — Michigan's hockey community lost a friend last month when Gale Cronk passed away at age 89, and tributes will be paid to his legacy today during funeral services in Fenton.  Cronk was considered the Godfather of the AAA hockey concept in our state and once helped promote a national tour for the famous 1980 US Olympic hockey team that shocked the world by beating the Russians en route to the Gold Medal in what is now considered one of America's most famous sports moments.
