ATLANTA (AP) – Longtime TNT broadcaster Craig Sager was remembered for his love of family, sports and colorful attire on Tuesday at a memorial service that produced laughs and tears.

Among those attending the service were San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich and members of Sager’s Turner Sports TV family, including Ernie Johnson and Reggie Miller.

Rev. Randy Mickler, former senior pastor of Mount Bethel United Methodist Church in Marietta, Georgia, led the service. Mickler noted he decided against wearing his normal black robe and instead wore a purple shirt and colorful jacket he said would have made Sager “extremely proud and pleased.”

Sager, 65, died Thursday following a two-year fight with acute myeloid leukemia.

Grammy winner Yolanda Adams sang two songs at the service. Johnson said Sager “planted sequoias” by inspiring others with his determined fight against cancer.
