Saying Goodbye To The Famous \'Stache


Born: May 24, 1993.

Shaved: Oct. 29, 2011, Air Canada Centre, multi-purpose room B.

Surrounded by camera crews and reporters, Wendel Clark’s moustache died suddenly from electric shearing and countless razor cuts.

Fondly remembered by its owner, Wendel Clark, of Toronto and Maple Leaf fans everywhere.

Predeceased by a goatee, a fu-Manchu, assorted stubble and a meagre little thing he kept in his first year of junior, Maple Leaf Gardens, wooden sticks.

Survived by Lanny McDonald’s handlebar mustache, Don Cherry’s goatee.

Sacrificed its life for Movember, men’s health awareness and prostate cancer awareness.

Instantly recognizable and usually accompanied by its downstairs neighbour, an angry scowl, Wendel Clark’s moustache grew from a little bit of dark hair on both sides of his mouth to one of the recognizable bits of face carpet in professional sports.

Friends may call at Air Canada Centre, 50 Bay Street, Toronto Ontario, beginning Saturday, Nov 5 against Boston to Thursday April 5 when the Tampa Bay Lightning are in town.  As a remembrance, Wendel Clark’s honoured banner in the arena rafters will continue to display the deceased.

In lieu of flowers which would no doubt be eschewed with a quick punch in the chops, mourners are asked do make their donations to visit http://ca.movember.com/mospace/network/MLSE
