Purdue fan who inspired amid cancer fight laid to rest

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Hundreds of dignitaries, sports figures and other people on Tuesday attended the funeral for Purdue University superfan and cancer activist Tyler Trent.

In a sanctuary of an Indianapolis church featuring many items of sports memorabilia collected by Trent, Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb read a message from Vice President Mike Pence and his wife, Karen. Holcomb said the state and the nation were inspired by Trent's courage and bravery fighting the bone cancer that took his life Jan. 1 at age 20.

Many speakers cited Trent's deep faith. Purdue quarterback David Blough said Trent would want the evening "to be all about Jesus."
