Statement from the Howe Family

Thank you for the outpouring of support on behalf of the entire Howe family. Gordie lived a tremendous life and we are all touched by how much of a positive impact he had on others globally.

Gordie truly loved his fans and spending time in the public life. As a family, we always said that he was at his best when he was around others. Whether it was giving a young aspiring hockey player an “elbow” for a photograph pose or pranking a fan by pretending to sign someone’s forehead, he relished the opportunity to be around those who loved him. His smile and genuine care for others was infectious and inspired us all. Gordie was most passionate about his beloved wife, Colleen, his family, the game of hockey and his incredibly supportive fans.

Thank you again for all of your support.
