Lindsay died on Monday at age 93.
Following a family visitation Thursday night at a Royal Oak Funeral Home, Lindsay’s casket will be moved to Little Caesars Arena and placed on carpeting right on the arena floor Friday morning. Visitors will be able to file past beginning at 9:07 a.m. and ending at 7:07 p.m. The time of seven minutes past the hour ties into Lindsay’s retired #7, which hangs in the rafters of the arena.
If you’re planning to go, the Red Wings are offering free parking at the Little Caesars Arena garage on Sproat Street as well as the Henry West garage on the west Fisher Freeway service drive. Fans are asked to enter through the Meijer entrance at the southwest corner of the arena, where they will be able to view Lindsay’s statue and sign a banner of condolence which will later be presented to the Lindsay family.

Lindsay will be remembered in a requiem Mass on Saturday morning at St. Andrew’s Church in Rochester. The funeral is closed to the general public, with the family and Red Wings asking fans to respect the family’s privacy and only attend the public event Friday. In lieu of flowers, contributions are being sought to support the Ted Lindsay Foundation.
Lindsay was born in 1925 in Renfrew, Ontario and played junior hockey for the Oshawa Generals, winning the 1944 Memorial Cup. He soon signed with the Red Wings, where he would eventually join Gordie Howe and Sid Abel as part of the famed Production Line, feared by opponents throughout the 1950s. Nicknamed “Terrible Ted” and hated by opposing fans for his tough, aggressive style of play, he compiled 1,808 penalty minutes. Lindsay scored goals over 17 seasons, 14 with Detroit and three with the Chicago Blackhawks.

Clark Davey, 1928-2019: 'The true journalist of journalists' - Ottawa CitizenWednesday, March 27, 2019
He was heartbroken after failing his medical, but an English teacher told him that people would pay him to write. So he enrolled in the first journalism degree course taught at University of Western Ontario, graduating in 1948 and joining the newsroom of the Chatham Daily News.There, he worked under Richard "Dic" Doyle, but moved to Kirkland Lake when the Thomson newspaper chain made him editor-in-chief of the Northern Daily News. His time there was brief, however, as his girlfriend, Joyce Gordon, issued him an ultimatum: Northern Ontario or me. He chose her: they married in September 1952.In the meantime, he joined the newsroom of the Globe and Mail, where his mentor Doyle had been working for a year.As a reporter with the Globe, Davey covered national and international affairs, including the Suez Canal crisis, the St. Lawrence Seaway project and the cancellation of the Avro Arrow program. During the 1957 federal election campaign, he recognized that Tory leader John Diefenbaker was gaining momentum and might actually win, and convinced his editors to allow him to stay with the Chief's campaign for 40 days.

When Doyle became editor of the Globe in 1963, he chose Davey as his managing editor, and, according to Mills, the two raised the broadsheet's reputation from that of a local paper to a national one. Davey was managing editor for 15 years before joining the Vancouver Sun in 1978. He was publisher there until 1983, when he took over at the Gazette. He was publisher of the Citizen from 1989 to 1993. He was also president and chair of The Canadian Press, and co-founder and president of the Michener Awards Foundation that oversees the country's most prestigious journalism prize."He was the true journalist of journalists," says Kim Kierans, journalism professor at University of King's College in Halifax and Michener Foundation board member. "He told me when I last saw him in November, ‘If we're not providing the encouragement for journalism organizations and journalists within them to do the journalism that matters, then we're in trouble as a democracy.'"He was also a lovely man, smart and sparkling … with incredible enthusiasm for the business and its future."According to Mills, Davey, who in 2002 led a protest on the steps of the Ottawa Citizen after Mills was fired for running an editorial critical of then-prime minister Jean Chrétien, was known as tough and gruff, "but deep down he was a really kind and thoughtful person, and a very good friend who was always fair to people. But if you didn't know him, he could be intimidating."And although he called the shots on the job, it was Joyce who ruled the home roost. According to son Ric, his father only stopped the presses twice - once while at the Globe, when Joyce called him to report that she and Ric thought they had just seen a UFO."That was the kind of pull she had over him," says Ric.Clark Davey is survived by his wife, Joyce; brother Kenneth George; children Ric (Rita Celli), Kevin (Margaret) and Clark Jr. (...
