Frazier to be memorialized publicly this weekend

    Rather than leave a candle outside Joe Frazier’s old gym on North Broad Street (as Apple customers did for Steve Jobs at the Center City Apple store), fans are invited to public viewings at the Wells Fargo Center this weekend.

    While talks continue in his home state of South Carolina about holding a public service there, it was announced that there will also be two public viewings at the Wells Fargo Center, where Frazier will lie in state (in a closed casket), today from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

    Family and friends will gather Monday at the Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church. Comments can be left on Joe Frazier’s Corner.
