Roy Halladay remembered for his hard work and generosity " We remember him as an incredible father, loving husband and loyal friend, " his family said in a statement Thursday.

A celebration of Halladay's life is scheduled for 4 p.m. ET at Spectrum Field in Clearwater, Fla., the spring training home of the Philadelphia Phillies, the only other Major League Baseball team he played for in a 15-year career that started in 1998. The service is open to the public.

The eight-time All-star and two-time Cy Young Award winning major league all-star pitcher died in a plane crash in the Gulf of Mexico off of the coast of Florida last week.

"We remember him as an wonderful father, loving husband and loyal friend", his family said in a statement Thursday.

He spent the next four seasons with Philadelphia, pitching a flawless game in 2010 en route to winning the National League's Cy Young Award. He posted a 203-105 record over his career before retiring after an injury-shortened 2013 season.

"He was an unbelievable coach for many youth teams, always showing patience and encouragement while reminding each child that they all had a role to play, a way to contribute and add value to their team", his family said. "His love for the game had no boundaries as we often saw him instructing and encouraging the players on opposing teams".
