Dr. Murray Howe

The man named Gordie Howe – not the hockey player, not the legend, not the living, breathing man – came into focus when his son, Murray, approached the podium to deliver his father’s eulogy.  Unlike his two brothers, Murray Howe failed in in his attempt to follow in his father’s footsteps to become a professional athlete. Yet, his failure brought him to the realization that in truth, his dream wasn’t to be a pro hockey player. His dream was to be his father, Gordie Howe.
