Friends and family are laying a long-time community leader and educator to rest.  The funeral is underway for Doctor William Garvey.

Mourners gather today at Saint Patrick's Cathedral to say a final farewell.  Those close to him remember him as a leader, a historian, and a visionary.  "I always felt when I was conversing with him; I was in the presence of one of the greatest minds I've ever had privilege to converse with."

For the past 50 years, Garvey served in numerous leadership roles.  Among them, 25 years as President of Mercyhurst College and Founder of the Jefferson Educational Society.
