Remarkably, Mark Sertich and his legendary handlebar mustache earned his Guinness World Record over 3 years ago, on July 20, 2017, at the age of 96 years and 2 days old while playing in the Snoopy’s Senior World Hockey Tournament in Santa Rosa, CA.

Which is pretty crazy considering he started playing hockey in 1931!

But setting a Guinness World Record didn’t slow the World War II veteran down, as Mark continued to play three to four times per week until the day he died.

While Mark Sertich will surely be missed by his family, hockey brethren, and many others, may we all celebrate his long love for the game. Stick taps to the legend!
