(Check It Out! Pictures!) UNIVERSITY PARK, Pennsylvania- Hundreds of mourners arrived and gathered to pay their last respect at Coach's wake at the Pasquerilla Spiritual Center which located inside the campus of Penn State University on January 24, 2012.
The 85-year-old football coach also known as 'JoePa' had died last Sunday, January 22, after battling with lung cancer. Paterno serves as PSU football head coach for almost a half century and holds the record for the winningest coach in major college football history.
In November 2011, Joe Paterno was fired in the middle of the season after his long-time assistant coach Jerry Sandusky was charged and arrested regarding sexual child abuse within the university vicinity with at least eight underage boys involved. Other school officials were charged for covering up the incident that includes president Graham Spanier which pushed him to resign.
