Fans, family, friends and teammates will pause Tuesday to remember the life of legendary Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay.
At the Philadelphia Phillies spring training facility, not far from Halladay's Florida home, a handful of speakers confirmed that, yes, he really was as wonderful a guy as you thought he was.
The service will be open to the public, and a sizable contingent from the Blue Jays is expected to attend.
"We remember him as an wonderful father, loving husband and loyal friend", his family said in a statement Thursday.

Former star pitcher Roy Halladay, who was the face of the Toronto Blue Jays for about a decade, will be remembered today in a memorial service. Overall, Halladay compiled a 203-105 record and a career 3.38 ERA, retiring in December 2013 because of ongoing back issues.
He spent the next four seasons with Philadelphia, pitching a flawless game in 2010 en route to winning the National League's Cy Young Award.
"He was an awesome coach for many youth teams, always showing patience and encouragement while reminding each child that they all had a role to play, a way to contribute and add value to their team", his family said. "His love for the game had no boundaries as we often saw him instructing and encouraging the players on opposing teams".
