Paterno's tenure at State College includes 409 victories--the most ever for an FBS coach--and two national championships. His passing comes two months after his dismissal in the wake of the sexual assault scandal involving longtime assistant coach Jerry Sandusky.

Paterno's family laid him to rest Wednesday in a private ceremony. Thursday's memorial service is the last public event to honor Paterno.
