Countless conversations, emails, texts with my friend. He just loved to talk hockey. Frozen in that chair always tightened my chest with sadness. But, he became a pass first human improving the life of many with his grit and relentlessness. Travis Roy was 45. Skate again, my man. pic.twitter.com/nuiMCffDEa

The thing is BU did not just retire his number because he was tragically injured. They retired it because his post-injury life he exemplified the class, grit, determination, strength, and perseverance (I could go on) that the BU hockey program strives to stand for

8 years old. Terriers were my team. I sheepishly called the donation line with my brother and Dad and donated my piggy bank. RIP Travis

He was once the Commencement Speaker at Utica College and I had the honor to escort him and his father for the weekend. Both he and his father were two of the nicest people I ever got to spend time with, and his speech to the students was filled with wisdom, passion, and hope.

I’ve only gotten emotional reading a book once and it was his autobiography. The way he detailed his dad coming out on the ice when he was injured and their small conversation made me sob like a baby. RIP Travis, truly the best.

I read his book in 6th grade. As a hockey player, it showed me how hard he worked before, and after this injury. He was such an inspiration.

I remember a young lad skating by himself in a partially lit arena working on his stick handling and skating skills. He loved the game of hockey and believed that he would one day play again. I am sure he is right now. God Bless him and give comfort to his family.
