A man convicted of sexually abusing dozens of boys while working at Maple Leaf Gardens has died.

According to The Canadian Press, Gordon Stuckless died Thursday night at a hospital in Hamilton after suffering a brain hemorrhage Tuesday.

Stuckless was in his early 70s.

In 2016, he was sentenced to six and a half years in prison for his crimes, which involved the sexual abuse of at least 18 young boys between 1969 and 1988.

His sentence was increased to ten years by Ontario’s highest court, which found his six-year sentence to be “demonstrably unfit” for the severity of his crimes.

He was released to a halfway house in Hamilton on day parole last December.

In 1997, Stuckless pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting 24 boys while working as an equipment manager at Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto.

He was sentenced to two years, which was increased to six years on appeal.

Stuckless was released on statutory release in 2001 after having served two-thirds of his sentence.
