Roy Halladay was honored by teammates, family and friends at a memorial service in Florida on Tuesday … remembering the star pitcher for his accomplishments both on and off the field.
Chase Utley — who played with Halladay on the Phillies for 4 seasons — praised Doc’s work ethic … saying he’d be done with his morning workouts by the time Utley showed up at the team facility.
Halladay’s wife, Brandy, was the last to speak … reminiscing about the first time they met as children … and raising their 2 sons together.
Other speakers included Cole Hamels, Chris Carpenter and Halladay’s former manager Charlie Manuel.
Halladay died in a plane crash in the Gulf of Mexico last week. He was 40 years old.
