Friends and Family Remember Ray Irvin

A former Texas Tech basketball player and Lubbock business man was remembered Friday.

Hundreds filled the First Christian Church Friday afternoon to celebrate the life of Ray Irvin. The 40-year-old was killed last Saturday in a head-on-collision south of Lubbock.

Irvin played for Tech from 1983 to 1986 and led them to two Southwest Conference championships. At the memorial he was also remembered by his business colleagues at Merrill Lynch. Darby Henley read a memory from Wade Lawrence. "I remember his big laugh and frequent smile. He was truly a gentle giant and that's what I will miss most about Ray."

The accident also killed Santos Zamano, who was driving the wrong way. DPS officials believe Zamano was intoxicated, but toxicology reports will not be in until next week.
