Ed Davender was laid to rest this afternoon in Lexington.  The former Wildcat great was surrounded by family, friends and former teammates at First Baptist Church Bracktown.

His former teammates Kenny Walker and Rex Chapman spoke at the funeral and served as pallbearers.  John Calipari was present to pay his respects alongside Davender’s coach, Joe B. Hall.  Coach Hall told WKYT that the Davender was much more than a talented guard.

If you’d like to contribute to Davender’s legacy, donations to the Ed Davender Memorial Fund are being accepted at all Central Bank locations.
