Walter Gretzky funeral: An emotional Wayne Gretzky remembers his father

“The Great One” Wayne Gretzky spoke Saturday during his father Walter’s funeral, who passed away at the age of 82 on Thursday. Wayne recounted a story of when he was younger and his mom, Phyllis, was on the verge of delivering his brother Brent. While Walter knew his wife Phyllis was close to going into labour, Wayne had an important hockey tournament that weekend. Phyllis ended up giving birth with Walter missing it. While one person remarked that he had missed the birth, Walter said after “yes, but we got the trophy.”
