Howie Meeker Death – Dead | Broadcaster Howie Meeker Obituary – Passed Away

Howie Meeker Death – Dead: A great loss was made known to InsideEko. As friends and families of the deceased are mourning the passing of their loved and cherished Howie Meeker.

Howie Meeker was a commentator I adored…!
I loved everything he brought to a broadcast and had often kept him in my mind throughout my own Colour Commentary days…
He was real and enthusiastic, sincere and unapologetic.
“he went around him like a hoop around a barrel”
RIP HM.

Howie Meeker has passed away at the age of 97. Not only was he a Canadian hockey legend, but he was also a champion in the world of salmon habitat conservation in British Columbia. Here he is with former @PSF president Brian Riddell at a fundraiser in 2016, where I met him.

As our day together comes to an end, we remember two Canadian icons lost today.

Thank you Alex Trebek + Howie Meeker for the countless years of entertainment, positivity and class. You’ve enriched our lives beyond measure. #RIP

Sad to hear the passing of the great Howie Meeker. Ironically, I talked about Howie on my podcast, airing tomorrow, and about his brave service to our country in time of war. #RIPHowieMeeker

Howie Meeker survived a grenade blast in World War 2 and went on to teach a generation of hockey fans about the game and so much more. Hero. Member of Parliament. Legend. Here’s to a life lived.

Howie Meeker, a four-time Stanley Cup champion with the Maple Leafs who was known by later generations of fans as an analyst on “Hockey Night in Canada,” died Sunday. He was 97.

Yesterday felt good. Today feels awful. Howie Meeker’s death leaves me with so much to say, and so little ability to find the right words. In this limited space, I’ll try by remembering him as the best of friends during the best times of my life.

RIP Howie Meeker, who has passed away at age 97.
