Subject: Obit: Stompin' Tom Connors Dead
Canadian music icon Stompin' Tom Connors has died at the age of 77.

A release on the folk musician's website confirms that Connors died of natural causes at his home in Ontario.

Connors is perhaps best well-known for "The Hockey Song," but has also released dozens of albums since the '60s.

Mudcat Beer's mom babysat him when he was just a tyke back in Skinner's Pond PEI.
