I recently attended the funeral mass of renowned osteopathic surgeon John (“Jack”) Finley, DO. Packed into the picturesque setting of a suburban Detroit Catholic chapel were countless family and friends, osteopathic physicians (ie, DOs) and leaders from osteopathic medical organizations, clergy, and a number of professional ice hockey's elite, including Hockey Hall of Fame inductee Ted Lindsay. No doubt Gordie Howe, who died about a year ago and was a close friend and patient of Dr Finley, was looking down with appreciation along with hundreds of other National Hockey League greats who were cared for by the revered “Hockeytown Doc” for more than 5 decades.
