Members of the Auburn Family filled the seats at Auburn Arena on Thursday to say goodbye to the "Voice of the Auburn Tigers," Rod Bramblett, and his wife Paula, at their memorial service there.

Among those in the crowd were Auburn coaches and those who have worked alongside Rod Bramblett throughout the course of his career.

Auburn head men's basketball coach Bruce Pearl spoke during the service, as did former Tigers hoops coach Sonny Smith, who called games with Rod Bramblett on the radio broadcast team.

Others, including Auburn head football coach Gus Malzahn and Rod Bramblett's football broadcasting partner Stan White, also took moments to reflect on their time with him and his wife in visits with the assembled media.
