Bill Cosby was showing pride for his alma mater while speaking at a friend’s memorial service Wednesday (June 4). The comedian was honoring Philadelphia Inquirer co-owner and philanthropist Lewis Katz, who died Saturday after his private jet crashed during takeoff.
Cosby, who attended Temple University with Katz, wore a pair of burgundy sweatpants emblazoned with the university’s name, along with a black T-shirt that read, “Self Made. Philly Made. Temple Made.” Yahoo, which has photos of the service, reports that during his speech Cosby urged those in attendance to carry on Katz’s legacy.
“Lewis Katz lives in what you do to the gifts that were given to you. You will treat these gifts as gifts — not something to be thrown in the trash,” he told those in attendance. “You don’t wait for people to come along and do it. You do it … You don’t have to have big money. All you have to have is yourself.” You can see more of Cosby’s speech in the video above.
