Mabardy died on Tuesday after he had a medical emergency while playing hockey at the New England Sports Center in Marlborough, according to MetroWest Daily News.
“He devoted his entire life to the people of Natick,” said Killeen. “He poured his whole heart and soul into every shift, and he would have done that until he retired if this didn’t happen.
