Family, friends honor Tarkanian at private funeral — PHOTOS

Las Vegas lost a historical figure with the passing of UNLV hall of fame basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian, but friends, family and a few public figures gathered Monday to remember “Tark the Shark” at a private funeral.

The service was held at Our Lady of Las Vegas church Feb. 16. Former UNLV players were in attendance.

Later in the evening, restaurant owner Freddie Glusman welcomed Tarkanian friends and fans to a reception honoring the life of his friend including a complementary cocktail that Tarkanian enjoyed.
