Joe Paterno's Funeral Scheduled For Wednesday In State College

The funeral for former Penn St. Nittany Lions coach Joe Paterno will take place Wednesday at 2 p.m. ET, surrounded by multiple days worth of public memorials. It will be held at Koch Funeral Home in State College. Paterno passed away Sunday morning after a two-month bout with lung cancer.

Tuesday at 1 p.m. ET, Penn State's Pasquerilla Spiritual Center will host a 10-hour public viewing, which will continue Wednesday morning for four hours. Thursday, Penn State will hold a memorial at the campus' Jordan Center at 2 p.m. ET. Expect all events to be very highly attended by Penn State alumni, students and fans, along with Pennsylvania community members.

Paterno's family has requested donations be made to the Special Olympics in lieu of flowers. Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett has ordered the state's flags to be flown at half-mast in remembrance of Paterno.
