A legend is being honored for the life he lived on and off the ice.

Tuesday is Gordie Howe’s visitation.

Howe passed away Friday at the age of 88.

Thousands of fans are paying their respects to the man known as Mr. Hockey.

The hall-of-famer played for the Detroit Red Wings during most of his 32-year career.

Over the course of five decades Howe scored 801 goals and 1,850 points.

During the 1950s Howe won four Stanley Cups with the Red Wings.
