The Sad: The Memorial for Arnold Palmer was held on Tuesday. Besides family and friends from all walks of live, thousands stood side by side outside the Cathedral in Latrobe PA to pay their respects.
The ceremonial honor guard for the U.S. Coast Guard opened the proceedings followed by former LPGA commissioner Charlie Mechem, Palmer’s neighbor and lifelong friend.
Those that spoke included PGA Tour commissioner Tim Finchem, Palmer’s grandson Sam Saunders, sportscaster Jim Nantz, R&A executive Peter Dawson, Hall of Famer Jack Nicklaus and LPGA legend Annika Sorenstam. Their stories about Arnie covered a vast period of his life. Some of the stories were funny, some were sad but all of them celebrated a beloved individual who touched many on and off the course.
