The life of Minnesota Twin great Harmon Killebrew is being celebrated in Arizona today. Killebrew died of cancer earlier this week.
Here are some of the audio highlights of today’s service.
Country music legend Charlie Pride sings at the beginning of the service.
Eric Queathem, Harmon’s grandson, will have you reaching for a Kleenex with his memories of his grandfather. Pay attention to the story of the time he was denied a golf cart in Oregon.
Harmon’s daughter, Shawn Bair, told the story of seeing her dad after finding out he had been diagnosed with cancer.
Killebrew’s grandson played one of his grandfather’s favorite songs, “And I Love You So.”
Killebrew’s son, Cam, described what it was like growing up in Minnesota and what his father taught him about respect. “It’s an honor to be his son,” he said.
