LUBBOCK, Texas -

Friends, family, and colleagues of long time Texas Tech coach Corky Oglesby gathered Saturday to honor the life of the coach.

Coach Corky was diagnosed with inoperable pancreatic cancer earlier in the year. 

According to family, Corky said he wanted to be in attendance for the memorial service now so that he could hear the eulogies given in his honor. He also requested that there be no memorial service for him when he passes. 

Friends and family say that "if he does cheat death and keeps going for several years, then the worst that happened is we had a heck of a party."

There are talks of making this an annual event if possible.
