    RIP Gordie

    I am a big hockey fan and Gordie was one of the best players in his time.

    A great skater and puck handler. He reminded me of Wayne Gretskey back in his day.
    I even saw Gordie at a Washington Capitals game not too long ago. He was there as a guest for some special event.

    His son Mark was also a great hockey player too and elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2011.
    Gordie was Inducted in 1972 into the Hockey Hall of Fame

    RIP Gordie a true legend of the sport

    I feel like I've been punched in the gut.

    Rest in Peace Mr. Howe.

    He's a legend who crosses rivalry lines and I think the entire hockey world is mourning his loss.

    Gordie Howe obituary in The Detroit News:

    Gordie Howe 1928 - 2016

    GORDIE "You find that you have peace of mind when you know that it was 100% effort that you gave, win or lose." Gordie Howe lived by that quote, giving 100% of his body to hockey, and 100% of his heart to the family, friends, and millions of fans he so cherished.Gordon Howe passed away peacefully in Sylvania, Ohio on Friday, June 10, 2016 at the home of his son Murray, surrounded by family. Gordie was born March 31, 1928 in Floral, Saskatchewan, the son of Albert and Katherine (nee Schultz) Howe. He was the sixth of nine siblings and grew up in nearby Saskatoon. In 1949, Gordie met and fell in love with Colleen Joffa, and they were married on April 15, 1953...

    Wojo: This was how Mr. Hockey should depart

    Bob Wojnowski, The Detroit News 7:18 a.m. EDT June 16, 2016

    Detroit — He brought out everyone, from regular folks to royalty. One final time, Mr. Hockey was a man of the masses, among the masses, from the thousands who paid their respects at Joe Louis Arena to the hundreds who attended his funeral.

    This was perfect, precisely how Gordie Howe should depart. He was a man without borders or barriers, who bridged generations and demographics. Everyone knew him, or knew of him. Everyone seemed to have met him at least once, at a book signing, a charity event, or a chance encounter at the airport...
