Why Bill Cosby wore sweatpants to friend's funeral Published: June 6, 2014

It wasn't hard to spot Bill Cosby at Lewis Katz's memorial on Wednesday.

Yahoo Celebrity reports the 76-year-old was one of nearly 1,400 mourners who gathered at the Temple Performing Arts Center in Philadelphia for an emotional memorial service to honor the philanthropist and Philadelphia Inquirer co-owner who died on Saturday at the age of 72 after his jet crashed during takeoff in Bedford, Massachusetts.

But in a sea of black suits, Cosby stood out by wearing bright burgundy Temple University sweat pants. The comedian sported the informal attire to pay respects to his close friend who was a classmate of his at Temple. Bill also wore a black T-shirt that read, "Self-Made, Philly Made, Temple Made" as he spoke fondly of Lewis and recounted how much he had given back to the city, including two Boys and Girls Clubs, Yahoo Celebrity reports.
