CLEARWATER, Fla. - Two-time Cy Young Award winner Roy Halladay was remembered Tuesday as an amazing husband, father, friend and teammate who was one of the best pitchers of his generation but an even better man.

A 91-minute "Celebration of Life for Roy Halladay" attracted more than 1,000 people to Spectrum Field, the spring training home of the Philadelphia Phillies, one of two franchises Halladay played for during a stellar 16-year career.

"The man made the ballplayer," Phillies owner John Middleton said, "not the other way around."

Gord Ash remembers Roy Halladay: ‘He took the burden on himself’

  Gord Ash remembers Roy Halladay: ‘He took the burden on himself’ Gord Ash was the Blue Jays’ GM when the team drafted Roy Halladay. He remembers the former ace as both “an intense competitor” and “a quiet family man.” Ash was GM when Toronto selected Halladay out of Arvada West High School in the first round of the 1995 draft. Halladay was the first draft pick made by Ash at the helm. “I remember speaking to Roy when we drafted him,” says Ash, who currently works in special projects for the Milwaukee Brewers. “He was a quiet young man. He was respectful but not much for small talk. As an executive, you remember better the players who were problems and Roy was never a problem.

The eight-time All-Star, who pitched a perfect game and a playoff no-hitter, played 12 seasons for the Toronto Blue Jays from 1998-2009 and four for the Phillies from 2009-13, going 203-105 with a 3.38 career ERA.

The public memorial began with a video tribute and ended with Halladay's wife, Brandy, standing on the mound and releasing butterflies from a container in a final "goodbye."

"All eyes are on me," the pitcher's wife, the last of nine speakers, said from a rostrum perched behind the mound, flanked by pictures of Halladay with the Phillies and Blue Jays, along with floral arrangements bearing the 34 and 32 jersey numbers he wore.

The tiny sport plane Roy Halladay was flying when he fatally crashed into the Gulf of Mexico on Tuesday was made for entry-level pilots like him, though the plane's chief designer and test pilot died while flying one earlier this year, officials and experts said.
