Chick Fil-Fil-A founder Truett Cathy died today at the age of 93.

Though he pulled himself up from poverty to found one of the most successful fast food chains in America, Cathy may end up being best remembered for the controversies that resulted in part from his conservative religious beliefs.

Though the company was being operated by Truett's son Dan at the time, the Chick-Fil-A gay marriage controversy of 2012 resulted in boycotts and public outcries against the iconic brand.

Chick-Fil-A was even banned by the city of Boston as a result of Dan Cathy's admission that he was opposed to gay marriage.

Truett had long since handed over the reins and adopted the honorary title of chairman emeritus, but many credited his fundamentalist religious beliefs (all Chick-Fil-A locations are closed on Sundays) with laying the groundwork for the marriage rights dust-up.

Rivers had a lot of famous friends and openly discussed her desire for a "Hollywood funeral" in her memoirs and stage acts. 

When the iconic comedienne was laid to rest on Sunda, the star-studded event in her honor - complete with song-and-dance numbers - would certainly not have disappointed.

Howard Stern delivered a eulogy that was reportedly filled with the sort of off-color jokes that made Joan famous. The New York City Gay Men's Chorus opened the show. Hugh Jackman sang "Quiet Please, There's a Lady on Stage," followed by one last standing ovation for Joan Rivers.
